BARI – "I’m playing well now thanks to the faith Stramaccioni has had in me and things are improving all the time," said Philippe Coutinho after the tournament. He scored the winning goal against Juventus and was chosen as best player by TIM.
Regarding the match against the Bianconeri and his goal, he explained: "We were well organised on the pitch and put in a good performance. I took up a position on the left and was ready to take advantage of the defensive error on the part of the Juventus defence."
Finally Coutinho was asked about Lucas: "Let’s hope he comes here; he’s a champion but these things aren’t up to me. The club takes the decisions over transfers."
