'Average €70-80m player, Barca paid €160m': our user rants about Coutinho...and gets carried away
The entire recruitment policy is under pressure.
Our user named Craziest Football Goals writes about Coutinho: "He is no way a world-class player, he was a midfielder known for his creativity sometimes. He was an average player worth around €70-80m and Barca, simply out of desperation, bought him for €160m. A total waste making him the most expensive Barca player.
"We would have had 2 players out of Eriksen/Pogba Salah/Mbappe for that money back then and would have got 3 players maybe if Dembele hadn't signed. They wasted so much money that came out of Neymar sale and still they are chasing Neymar without even thinking which is another silly and mad decision."
The user can't stop ranting: "Our great club make errors in main matches and are overdependent on Messi. A nobody like Origi and Manolas comes up and f**** us badly. Neither the board nor the players are serious.
"And they give their stupid and unwanted transfers like signing Griezmann for €120m at 28 years of age [while] stupidly selling youngsters. How unlucky Messi is. He does the hard work of 10 players and in the end, the same 10 players disappoint him."
❓ What's Coutinho's real level? Was he among Barca's top-3 players with the right use?
