How can Philippe Coutinho play in Vasco? see options

The star arrives at Cruz-Maltino and becomes hope for the creativity of the midfield, in addition to the ability to play with Payet

The wait for Cruz-Maltina fans is finally over as star Philippe Coutinho has signed a one-season contract with Vasco. He will be loaned from Aston Villa, England. However, there are interesting facts about the player, one of which is how he can play today in the team under Rafael Paiva.

In this way, Coutinho breaks the claim of some fans and critics that he only plays on the left side, playing and cutting in the center. In his last club, Al-Duhail, the midfielder often occupied the right midfield and centrally. By operating in multiple areas, the number 11 better uses his vision of the game to supply his attackers, something that Vegetti does not have, at least in ground passes, when Payet is absent.

For Brazil and Liverpool, both of which were his best moments in his career, Coutinho played more on the left and his strengths were his dribbling and finishing. Thus, he scored his goal against Argentina in a qualifier in Mineirão, in 2016, and also in his debut at the 2018 World Cup against Switzerland.

How can Coutinho play in Vasco?

Finally we arrive at Vasco da Gama. What position can he play? In the Rio team, the star can play in any of the three roles and areas of the pitch mentioned. However, since Payet tends to play more on the left, it is likely that Coutinho will play centrally in the center or fall to the right, just like Al-Duhail. He will be able to give a boost to Adson, in great form and increasing production in the attack on the right.

The problem, in fact, is in defense, Coutinho and Payet do not have the physicality and ability of other years to attack and respond, but even so it will take effort if they play together first. However, a more marked midfield will be necessary when the team does not have possession. Today only Hugo Moura has the ability to play a similar role.
