Bayern Munich: Philippe Coutinho thinks Germany is more familiar than Liverpool | Football | Sport


Bayern Munich forward Philippe Coutinho has claimed that Bavaria is better at creating a familiar atmosphere than Liverpool.

The Brazilian made a high-profile loan move to Bayern this summer, after finding himself moving down the pecking order at Barcelona.

He had also been linked with a move back to Anfield, where he moved from in 2018 for £130million.

But, after agreeing a move to the Bundesliga to work with Niko Kovac, Coutinho has said that life in Munich is more familial than what he’s used to.

When he was asked if Bayern is “more familial” than his previous teams, Coutinho said: “Definitely. That’s exactly what I thought.”

He told Sky Sports in Germany: “Everything here is very familiar. I know that from Liverpool a bit, but here it is even more familiar.

“It’s been very nice. In the first days I was shown all facilities first. I met the teammates and of course the coaching team.

“Every day I feel a little better, I am very happy.”

The Brazilian added that the Bayern Munich fans had helped him to feel more at home at the Allianz Arena.

“The fans were incredibly nice to me, it’s great to feel the positive energy of them very close,” he said.

“Many children are always there, I see the radiance in their eyes and that makes me happy.

“I wrote a lot of autographs that day, I hope I did not forget anyone. To have this contact regularly is nice.”

The former Barcelona and Liverpool star has started learning German to help him adapt to life further in Munich.

He’s also been relying on Portuguese speaker Thiago Alcantara to help him with translations.

Coutinho has featured in three Bundesliga fixtures for Bayern so far this season.

He’s yet to score his first goal at the club, having only started on one occasion, and even then he was substituted mid-way through the second half.
