The club is considering giving Coutinho another chance to succeed. They will sweeten the deal by giving him the No. 10 jersey. Reports are saying that he is thinking about it.
While waiting for the exits of Miralem Pjanic and Samuel Umtiti, the number that Messi wore is the only one available now at the club. If all goes according to plan, Phillipe Coutinho could wear the No.10 jersey against Athletic Bilbao if he is included in the matchday squad.

In my opinion, this is a good idea for the club and for Phillipe Coutinho, because giving him the No. 10 shirt will seriously boost his confidence at the moment. We all know that ever since Coutinho completed his big money move to Barcelona in 2018, he has not lived up to expectations at the club due to injuries and dip in form. Coutinho is still 29 years old and he has a lot to offer in his career as he hasn't clocked 30 years old yet. Wearing the No. 10 jersey will show that the club hasn't lost faith in him and it will also boost his confidence. What do you think?
