Iniesta speaks on Coutinho taking his place in the team
Philippe Coutinho’s arrival at Barcelona raised many questions about the future of Andres Iniesta in Camp Nou.
Iniesta recently penned a new contract with Barcelona to keep him at the club for life. And in an interview with Onda Cero Iniesta revealed he still has a lot to offer to the club despite Coutinho’s arrival.
“The best always have to be at this club.” he said.
“Coutinho is one of the best, young, with innate talent and Barcelona is a club where he can keep growing.”
“Nobody will ever arrive here to retire me or kick me out. At 33 that’s not the question, Coutinho is coming here to add to the team.”
“What sticks with me is that he’s one of the best players in his position.”
“He has a profile which is liked here. He’s a fast player, talented, who combines very well, uses both feet, creates and scores goals.”
“He will find a great environment here to g row in. Beyond the huge figures (of the market), we have to be happy that he’s ours.”
