Neymar has revealed that his Brazil team-mate Philippe Coutinho is in a state of 'anguish, disappointment and sadness' after being unable to secure a move to Barcelona this summer.
The Liverpool playmaker returned to action in the early hours of Friday morning, scoring in Brazil's 2-0 win over Ecuador, having recovered from a curious back injury which has sidelined him throughout Liverpool's start to the Premier League campaign.
Coutinho came off the bench on the hour-mark in the World Cup qualifier and Neymar — who became the most expensive player in the world with his £198million switch to Paris Saint-Germain this summer — was happy for the Liverpool man to make a successful comeback following a summer in transfer limbo.
