Phillippe Coutinho is in fix at the moment. He is an asset of Barcelona FC, the top Spanish club but is playing for Bayern Munich, the top German club.The problem with this arrangement is that he seldom starts. The bigger problem is, according to reports, Barca wants him to find a new club and Bayern is not buying. On loan from Barcelona, the Brazilian was once adored as the midfield wizard of Liverpool FC.
