Philippe Coutinho: Barcelona form not normal

Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho has admitted the club’s current run of form ‘is not normal’ but explained ‘there is no need to panic’.

The Brazilian arrived from Liverpool in January and helped the club to last season’s league title but Ernesto Valverde’s side have picked up just three points in their last four games.

“Going four (league) matches without a win is not normal for this club,” Coutinho told reporters, as cited by Diario Sport.

“A football season is a long time and lots of things can happen, so the situation is always amplified but we know not to panic.

“I am not worried because I know this team, we are still in at the top end of the table and we made a strong start in the Champions League. We are calm.”
