Coutinho says he's happy at Bayern, thanks Liverpool's Firmino for support
- Philippe Coutinho joined Bayern Munich on loan.
- Before the move he talked to Roberto Firmino asking for advice.
- The Liverpool striker, of course, helped his former teammate with information about Bundesliga.
But apparently, before joining the Bundesliga side on loan, ex-Liverpool player turned to his former teammate Bobby Firmino.
Roberto himself played in Germany and he was able to give Phil some advice based on his time at Hoffenheim and send him a message of support. Coutinho is grateful for this.
"I talked with Roberto Firmino about the intensity of the Bundesliga and the tight matches there," he said. "He told me a lot about the different Bundesliga teams."
He also gives an update on his loan:
"Some of my Brazil team-mates asked me how things are going at Bayern.
"I told them how happy I am to be there. I had a great welcome from my team-mates, club, fans, media and want to repay it with goals and performances on the pitch."
Last season at Barca, Coutinho only scored 11 goals in all competitions. In total, he contributed to 32 Barcelona goals with 21 goals and 11 assists, failing to live up to any expectations at Camp Nou.
Coutinho joined Barcelona from Liverpool in January 2018. His initial transfer fee is 120 million euros with a further €15 million arrived as add-ons, a shrewd piece of business for the Reds who bought Alisson and Van Dijk with the money.
