Speaking of Sky Sports Football YouTube ChannelRob Holding has opened up about Philippe Coutinho and how he has fought against him in the past.

Holding has been asked when he has ever been flushed by a world-class opponent and unfortunately Holding’s example came from his Arsenal debut.

In fact, the centre-back said he faced Philippe Coutinho in his very first game for the Gunners at his best and claimed the Brazilian was ‘a joke’ that day.

Thrown in cold water

We can’t help but have sympathy for Holding here.

Could you imagine making the leap from Bolton to Arsenal and having to face a player like Coutinho on your debut? The Brazilian was one of the best players in the world back then.

Even the best defenders in the Premier League could not handle Coutinho this year, let alone a defender who had only ever played league football.

Coutinho scored twice that day and unfortunately Holding came under fire for his performance.

Fortunately, however, the Englishman has bounced back and is now an established Premier League centre-back.
