Ronaldinho: Coutinho is perfect for Barcelona

Ronaldinho believes Philippe Coutinho is a perfect fit for Barcelona and hopes he can eventually secure a move to the Nou Camp from Liverpool.

Coutinho, who has scored four goals in his last five games, was the subject of three failed summer bids from Barcelona, the last of which was worth an initial £113m. Barca is expected to renew their interest in the 25-year-old in January and Ronaldinho told Sky Sports News he would like to see Coutinho lining up for his former club.

-I would be very happy to see such a talented player wear the shirt I wore for so many years. I believe the way he plays will perfectly suit Barcelona and would be delighted to see a player of such quality wear the shirt. I like the way Coutinho plays and the type of football he brings. Those types of qualities will hopefully help Brazil win the next World Cup, said Ronaldinho, who is in London this week as a Football for Peace ambassador.

Brazil faces England at Wembley on Tuesday evening.
