Coutinho injury blow for Barcelona

Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho needs surgery to mend a torn meniscus after the Brazilian limped off the pitch late in Tuesday’s drab home draw with Eibar. His loss adds to a long list of injuries including Lionel Messi with the club sixth in La Liga seven points off leaders Atletico Madrid. “It’s the meniscus in his left knee and it needs surgery, which will be carried out in the coming days,” a Barcelona statement said. Coutinho was recruited from Liverpool for £142 million pounds (157m euros) in 2018.
