Philippe Coutinho has regained the smile on his face in Bayern Munich . After passing a complicated stage at Barça , a club that still owns the Brazilian, the midfielder has given an interview to ‘Sky Sports’ in which he speaks wonders of his new team.
“It’s more familiar than my old clubs. I know this about Liverpool, but here it is even more familiar,”said Coutinho , ignoring his time at Barça and stressing that “they were very good to me and it’s great to feel that positive energy. ”
“In my early days Bayern gave me all the facilities, I met the teammates, the coaches. Every day I feel a little better, I am very happy”said the Brazilian, who added that Thiago is helping him a lot in adapting.
“Thiago speaks Portuguese and helped me a lot in the first few days, especially in terms of communication. German is really difficult! But I’ve set myself the goal of learning a little. A few employees also speak Portuguese which makes it easier for me,” the Brazilian international added.
