Barcelona director Guillermo Amor has assured Philippe Coutinho of a big future at Camp Nou despite struggling for game time in the last four La Liga matches.

The Brazillian has started from the bench since Dec. 2 and this has led club director Guillermo Amor to assure the Brazilian who joined Barcelona from Liverpool on a record fee of €160 million last January.

“Coutinho’s a player with a lot of experience, one of the best players in Europe and he is ready to play [for] five minutes or 90 minutes,” Amor told Movistar via ESPN when asked if the club were concerned by the lack of return from their investment so far.

Milosevic: Barcelona target Jovic is the future of world football

Former striker Savo Milosevic believes "born goalscorer" Luka Jovic would be a perfect fit for Barcelona and tipped him to become the "future of world football".

“He’s a player that thinks more about the team than himself and there are no doubts about him being one of the best players in the world. He’s always played well for Barca, he could play [every game] from the off.

“Barça signed him because he’s one of the best in the world and he’s going to give us a lot. He’s got many years left on his contract and a lot to give to Barcelona.”
