Philippe Coutinho Out for Three Months After Knee Surgery, Says Barcelona



Barcelona, January 2: Brazil midfielder Philippe Coutinho will be sidelined for three months after undergoing surgery on his left knee, Barcelona said Saturday. The 28-year-old Coutinho underwent “a successful operation on the external meniscus of his left knee,” the club said in a statement.

Coutinho hurt his knee toward the end of Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Eibar. Coutinho became Barcelona’s most expensive signing when the club paid Liverpool 160 million euros ($192 million) in January 2018.

But after a disappointing season-and-a-half, Coutinho was loaned to Bayern Munich. He helped the German club win the Champions League earlier this year and scored two goals in an 8-2 rout of Barcelona in the quarterfinals. Real Madrid vs Celta Vigo, La Liga 2020–21, Free Live Streaming Online & Match in Indian Time: How to Get Live Telecast on TV & Football Score Updates in IST?.

He returned to his parent club this season and has scored three goals. His loss compounds Barcelona’s injury trouble. It has also lost forward Ansu Fati and Gerard Pique to serious injuries this season.
