Barcelona coach Koeman: Coutinho is a great player, He can be important for Barca

Ronald Koeman: "Philippe is out because I think he needs one more week to train with the group before being called up,"

"I do count on him because he is a great player. He can be important for Barca. He started playing last year, then he had an injury. I really count on Coutinho for this season.
"Coutinho can play in various positions. He can play from the left wing. We have lost goals with Messi and we have to look for them in other players. Philippe is one of them."

The Catalan giants take on Athletic Bilbao in LaLiga action on Saturday, with Koeman's charges looking to maintain their winning start.
