Brazil star Philippe Coutinho has revealed that he spoke to compatriot Roberto Firmino before making a move to​ Bayern Munich. The Brazilian moved to Germany from the Camp Nou after a rather underwhelming spell with the ​Catalans.

The Bavarians signed him on loan and Coutinho has revealed that he spoke to Firmino about the intensity of the league and that his compatriot has already told him a lot about the teams that play in Bundesliga.

"I talked with Roberto Firmino about the intensity of the Bundesliga and the tight matches there," Coutinho was quoted as saying by the Mirror.

"He told me a lot about the different Bundesliga teams.”

He then went on to reveal that his team-mates in the Brazil team have asked him how his experience at Bayern has been thus far and he has stated that he is very happy about being with the Bavarians.

"Some of my Brazil team-mates asked me how things are going at Bayern. I told them how happy I am to be there."

Coutinho also added that he has been welcomed well by everyone at the club and is looking to pay back their faith by his performances on the pitch.

"I had a great welcome from my team-mates, club, fans, media and want to repay it with goals and performances on the pitch," he added.
