He can make the difference if played in the right position

Cafu reckons Philippe Coutinho should remain at Bayern Munich next season rather than return to Barcelona.

The Brazilian is on a season-long loan with the Bundesliga champions, but it seems unlikely the German club will take up the purchase option in his contract.

Recent rumors have suggested he’s not wanted at Barcelona next season either, and Cafu thinks he should try and stay at the Allianz Arena.

“I would advise him to stay with Bayern. Phil is a sensational football player, extremely talented, smart and dangerous. He has already demonstrated his skills in Barcelona and Liverpool, ” he said.

”In the right position, he can make a difference. You definitely have to play him in the center where he is much more important for the team.”

Coutinho’s price tag is likely to prove a problem this summer if Barcelona do try and sell the 27-year-old, meaning another loan looks the most likely option currently.
