Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho joined Bundesliga side Bayern Munich on a season-long loan during summer transfer window and his former Liverpool teammate Roberto Firmino gave an advice to the midfielder.

Coutinho left the Reds back in 2018, however he didn’t settle at La Liga side and was sent on loan to Munich.

In an interview with SportBild, Coutinho revealed that Firmino has told him about the intensity of Bundesliga.

“I talked with Roberto Firmino [who knows the Bundesliga from his time in Hoffenheim] about the intensity of the Bundesliga and the tight matches there. He told me a lot about the different Bundesliga teams,” said Coutinho.

“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.”
