But, Coutinho could not fill up their requirement. So, he has lost his place at Camp Nou. But, behind his failure, not Coutinho himself but the Argentine star Lionel Messi is completely responsible, the former Brazilian star Rivaldo revealed that.

But why, a player like Coutinho could not find his place at the Camp Nou? Rivaldo told that because of Messi, he could not earn his place. It is always tough to get a place and it would become more difficult when a player like Messi is in the team who used to take all the responsibility. So, all credits used to go to the Argentine no doubt.
There are only a few numbers of players in the World who can adapt to the situation. But, Coutinho could not adapt it. Lionel Messi is the main player in Barcelona and also the captain of the team. Still, he will play three or four more years. In the meantime, rest players would face the same problems as Coutinho.
