Barca hands Coutinho No. 7 shirt

Barcelona have confirmed that midfielder Philippe Coutinho has been handed the number seven shirt.

The Brazil international wore number 14 after joining the Camp Nou outfit from Liverpool in January.

However, the La Liga champions have announced a change in numbers for the new campaign, claiming that seven is “synonymous with great players” in the club’s history.
