“I think Coutinho is a good player and I’m not even trying to be harsh on him, I think I want to find Barcelona guilty for the situation because they put a price on Coutinho who I think doesn’t belong to that league.

“When I see Neymar when I see [Cristiano] Ronaldo when I see [Lionel] Messi when I see [Kylian] Mbappe, I see top, top players.

“Coutinho has a price of a top, top player and I don’t want to make a statement but I’m not sure he has the quality of a top, top player.
