Barcelona confirm Philippe Coutinho squad number

The Brazilian has had to switch from No.7

FC Barcelona v Elche CF - Joan Gamper Trophy

Philippe Coutinho will be back in the No. 14 shirt for Barcelona in 2020-21 after switching numbers ahead of the campaign.

The Brazilian wore the number when he first arrived at the Camp Nou and is back in it again and looking pretty happy about it too.

Coutinho did wear the No. 7 before his loan move to Bayern Munich but that has now gone to Antoine Griezmann.

The Frenchman has made no secret of the fact that it’s his favorite and thanked Coutinho on social media for letting him make the switch.

Coutinho and Griezmann will be in the new numbers for the first time in La Liga on Sunday when Barcelona kick off their campaign at home to Villarreal.
