Ronaldinho backs Coutinho to succeed at Barcelona.

Former Barcelona player, Ronaldinho believes Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho would be a success at Barcelona, should he end up swapping Anfield for the Nou Camp.The Catalans pursued the Brazilian aggressively this summer but saw four bids rejected by Liverpool with the final offer believed to be worth up to £138million.Coutinho handed in a transfer request in a bid to force through the move but The Reds stood firm and held on to the former Inter Milan midfielder.Reports in Spain however suggests that Barcelona who are still interested in the player, are preparing to return to Liverpool with another offer for his services in January.And Ronaldinho has thrown his support behind the potential move, saying Coutinho’s style of play would see him fit in well at Barcelona.The former Barcelona star told The Mirror: ‘Of course the decision is Coutinho’s but Barcelona would suit him,’ ‘Talking about Philippe brings be a lot of happiness. He’s a player I admire. Seriously it brings me joy watching him.‘Barcelona doesn’t have any particular ­attraction for Brazilian players. But if he – or anyone – is to succeed there, they must play with passion. And they have to be happy. Then it’s just down to the ­player’s own imagination as to whether they ­succeed.’
