  • Philippe Coutinho Joins Qatari Champions Al Duhail On Loan

Philippe Coutinho joins Qatari champions Al Duhail on loan

Qatari side Al Duhail have signed Philippe Coutinho from Aston Villa on a season-long loan.

The Brazilian playmaker has fallen down the pecking order since making a loan move from Barcelona permanent last summer.

Coutinho started only seven Premier League matches last season and did not make an appearance after mid-February, while this term he twice came off the bench before suffering a hamstring injury.

Al Duhail are the reigning Qatari champions having won the Qatar Stars League last season.

Coutinho, 31, starred during a five-year spell with Liverpool from 2013 to 2018, which persuaded Barcelona to pay more than £100million for his services.

He has made 43 appearances during 18 months with Villa, scoring six goals.
