Luis Suarez Apologises To Philippe Coutinho After Barcelona Debut

Luis Suarez apologises to Philippe Coutinho after Barcelona debut

 

Luis Suarez has apologised to Philippe Coutinho for failing to give his new team-mate an assist on his Barcelona debut.

Coutinho made his first appearance for the Catalan side on Thursdayevening following his £142million switch from Liverpool.

Coming on as a substitute in the 68th minute, Coutinho impressed as he helped Barcelona hold on to a 2-0 lead against Espanyol. The result saw his new team advance to the semi-finals of the Copa del Rey with a 2-1 aggregate score.

But despite being on the winning side, it could have been an even more special night for Coutinho.

The Brazilian laid on a perfect pass for Suarez to score from close range, but the Uruguayan saw his shot saved. It meant Coutinho missed out on a debut assist.
