Philippe Coutinho is happy in Munich. He joined Bayern on loan from Barcelona for 8.5 million euros as he looks to regain the confidence he had at Liverpool and in his first few months at Camp Nou.
The Brazilian has spoken to Sky Sport in Germany about his first few weeks at the Bundesliga club and his adaption to his new surroundings.
"In the first few days they showed me all the facilities, I met my teammates and the coaches," he said. "Every day I feel a bit better. I am really happy here."
Coutinho said that Thiago Alcantara has helped him a lot: "He's Brazilian and he speaks Portuguese. He's been useful, especially in terms of communication. German is very difficult, but I will try to learn it a little!"
What he's noticed the most, he says, is the closeness of the people. He spent half an hour signing autographs and posing for photos after his first training session but it's not a problem for him,
"I think it's really good," he added. "They were good with me and it's great to feel that positive energy. I signed a lot of autographs, I hope I didn't miss anyone."
The player also said that "everything here feels like a family. I know that a bit from my time at Liverpool, but here, it feels even more like a family.”
