    Rakitic is slow and takes long time to line up a long range shot. Alot of times when he got ready to shoot, the defender also got ready to block.

    Coutinho can shoot off of his dribble and he has much faster release to avoid get his shots blocked.

    why do you guys worries about this guy?
    Here are some reasons hell be a success:

    -maybe best ball controll in the team after messi, iniesta, busquets
    -top shootng, top passing
    -can beat defenders in 1vs1 situations with ease
    -sees spaces to exploit either with passes or with runs

    I'm much more worried about dembele who just didnt anything until now

    Yeah , that's a decent point about Dembele.

    I still have high hopes for him but he does seem to need a lot of space in front of him to be effective... something we rarely seem to come across .

    Not worried about either, many players have improved under Valverde, it'll be the same with these two.

    Coutinho confirmed in his MD interview he can be registered as a EU citizen thanks to his wife who has a portuguese passport. Same deal as Suarez with his wife who has an Italian passport.

    So we will have a Third open spot in the summer for Non EU Spots.

    And here is interview with him.

    http://www.mundodeportivo.com/futbol...deportivo.html

    I've gone through the text and it's not in there so I suppose it's mentioned in the video. I'm currently at work so can't watch it.

    Also, here is a proof of his wife (and probably his daughter) having a portuguese passport. At least I think so.





    Anyway, there is absolutely no reason for Coutinho to lie about that but I assume the whole process of him getting portuguese nationality could take some time. I think he also let the club know about the possibility of getting portuguese passport soon and that's why we are going strongly after Arthur (though I still don't think he'll come before January 2019) as well. It's just a bit strange to me that no journalist has asked him about this in his introductory press conference.

    Coutinho puts all those shots on target or very close. And, like Messi, he doesn't need any space to get those shots off. Rakitic is not in the same class.

    Coutinho's outside curlers and Mina headers may well pick up or save points in games against tough buses.

    to be fair to rakitic you only ever really see him shoot when he has an obvious opening. he rarely takes the time or effort to create a lane for a solo shot.

    MD says with Coutinho being able to count as a EU player thanks to his wife having a Portuguese passport, that may have saved Yerry from being sent on loan as we will finally have a open non EU Spot.

    There were rumors that Yerry would have likely went on loan in spain due to being non eu as we wanted to bring in Arthur.
