Brazilian legend Rivaldo believes Philippe Coutinho should seek a move back to the Premier League.

The Barcelona star has struggled since joining the club from Liverpool, while his loan at Bayern Munich was not an outright success.

Now the legendary World Cup winner Rivaldo has suggested he join Tottenham or Arsenal, as he could be world class at those clubs.

Rivaldo told Betfair: "Coutinho will soon return from his loan at Bayern to Barcelona, but I doubt he can revive his career there.

"His best option could be returning to English football where he spent the best seasons of his career.

"His qualities seem to be best suited, as he proved at Liverpool when was one of the best players in the Premier League.

"At Arsenal, Tottenham or Leicester, Coutinho could be a regular starter next season.

"It would be a good opportunity for the Brazillian to rediscover his best form and show that he continues to be an excellent player who belongs to the elite."
