"I don't really like the level that Arthur's been playing at," he said. "I thought he was going to do more. Arthur can do more. I know him. He can do what [Andres] Iniesta did at Barça. It's not a criticism, it's a disappointment." 

In addition, on Coutinho, who Barça paid 160 million euros for in 2018, he said: "He's not having a season like those he had at Liverpool. He's playing with the brakes on and hasn't released his [usual] game." 

Anderson, who also played for Lyon, believes that Tuesday's Champions League game between his two former sides will be a tough one for the Catalans. 

"Valverde's team is more complete than in other years," he added. "I think that the most difficult tie for Barça is Lyon. If they get through, they will win the Champions League."
