Brazilian midfielder Felipe Coutinho admitted that his season with Barcelona was not in line with expectations, but promised to double his efforts to "win the Seleccal Championship" in the hope of winning Copa America at home.
"It is true that my season was not good and I did not do the play I wanted," said 27-year-old Coutinho, who at the press conference said, "I obviously want better, and that would be a lesson for me."
Coutinho, who left Liverpool in January 2018 and moved to Barcelona for 160m euros, said: "I have to work more seriously and focus more on the crown of the Brazilian team whether it's a good season or not, it does not change anything, I still have the same desire. "
Many journalists have asked questions about Coutinhu, who only scored five goals in the Spanish league this season, about a possible departure from the Catalan club, but said only that "many things out in the press are not true."
"I can not say anything about my future. No one knows what can happen."
Coutinho, who leads Brazil in the absence of injured star Neymar, scored the first two goals for his country Copa America against Bolivia (3: 0) but in the second match against Venezuela (0: 0) gave disappointing effect before he was in third he returned his form. Peru (5-0).
"We will try to maintain the level of the game we played in the game against Peru, improve things we did not play well in other games, we will have to raise the level of the game in the tournament," Coutinho said.
