Aston Villa midfielder Philippe Coutinho admits his Barcelona move failed to meet expectations - but insists he has no regrets.

Coutinho left Barca permanently earlier this month for Aston Villa.

"Barcelona was not the experience I expected, but life is like that. The only time I was worried was when I got injured. I was out for nine months and had three operations. That time I was worried about playing again and things like that. But Now everything is normal, I'm very happy and I just want to stay here," assured the Brazilian.

"I don't regret anything. Everything is part of life's ups and downs. My dream was to play for Barcelona since I was a child. But now it's in the past and I look forward to my future here. I also learned a lot in that time. It was a very difficult moment for me, but it made me stronger in my head. From there it was important for me."
