Philippe Coutinho

Barcelona full-back Nelson Semedo has stood by team-mate Philippe Coutinho in these testing times for the Brazilian.

The record-signing has received stick from critics and fans alike for his poor season.

To his credit, Coutinho is showing some improvements in the last couple of weeks and even scored a screamer to nail the coffin on Manchester United in the Champions League.

However, he has still been at the receiving end of some criticism, mainly directed towards his celebration.

Semedo maintained that he backs the Brazilian and knows how hard he is working to get back to his best.

The Portuguese also expressed his thoughts on how Coutinho has already demonstrated what he can do with the ball and is still doubted by everyone.

“I am 100 percent with Coutinho,” he said after the match, according to Marca.

“I know what has been working to improve and to help the team.

“He has already demonstrated his abilities and I do not understand why people doubt his quality.”
