Barcelona have confirmed that new signing Philippe Coutinho is stepping up his recovery from injury as he waits to make his debut for his new club.

Following his arrival from Liverpool, the Brazilian was swiftly ruled out for three weeks with a thigh problem.

He has been in training in the sand at Ciutat Esportiva but is now doing work with the ball and hopefully soon he will be back with the group.

Barcelona’s initial estimate suggested Coutinho’s first match could be against Espanyol on February 4th, although he could possibly make the visit of Alaves on January 28th.

Here’s hoping his recovery continues to go well and we can see him in action soon.
