Coutinho is injured, out for three weeks

Barcelona fans will have to wait before seeing new signing Philippe Coutinho in action, with the midfielder joining the club with a hip injury.

Confirming the fitness issue, the club expect that he will be out of action for approximately 20 days.

Therefore, the former Inter man will be on the sidelines until the end of January or the start of February.

If all progresses as expected, he could be available to Ernesto Valverde against former club Espanyol away from home on February 4.

Should Barcelona advance in the Copa del Rey, his debut could also take place a few days earlier in the first leg of the semi-final in that competition.

Barcelona confirmed the signing of Coutinho on Saturday, paying 120 million euros plus another 40 million euros in bonuses for his services.
