Is Phillipe Coutinho the right player to inherit Lionel Messi's No 10 jersey?.

According to recent reports, Phillipe Coutinho has been suggested as the best player in the Barcelona current team to inherit Lionel Messi's iconic No 10 Jersey. The Brazilian International has made quite a useful contribution to team since he was signed from Liverpool in 2018, so it's only reasonable for him to be considered as one of the favourite players to wear the number.

But the question still remains is Phillipe Coutinho the best man to inherit Lionel Messi's No 10 jersey?.

Well, if you ask me I will say absolutely not. The Brazilian International is without a doubt a very resourceful player but let's put in the back our mind that the 29 year-old can't be relied upon. Currently, he's been linked with a move to Arsenal but if in the long run he doesn't join the Gunners, I don't think the No 10 jersey should be given to him.

Coutinho sustains severe injuries a lot and for this reason only he shouldn't be given the responsibility to wear the NO 10 jersey.

What's your take on this?, Kindly leave your thoughts in the comment section below... Thanks.
