    Poor players leads to defeat,lack of creativity bring the package on table to purchase Yuan Iturbe(Helas verone) and Fernando Geyes ( Porto )you’ll see next . Iturbe plays same as coutinho same calibe he is left footed while Fernando is a marathon defensive midfielder ,so easy for him to chase ball
