Philippe Coutinho says he is enjoying the early weeks of his loan spell at Bayern Munich, insisting that the Bundesliga club feels ‘like a family.’

The Brazilian joined the German champions on loan from Barcelona this summer, after an ill-fated 1 months at the Camp Nou.

Coutinho joined Barca from Liverpool for a fee of £114m in January 2018, but the move has not worked out as both parties had hoped.

However, the player says he has a very comfortable, familial feeling at the Allianz Arena and says he has made his first steps to learn German.

“The first few days they showed me the facilities, I met my teammates, the coaches,” Coutinho told Sky. “Every day I feel a little better, I am very happy.

“Bayern are more of a family than my old clubs. I know there’s the atmosphere of Liverpool, but it’s even more of a family here.

“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.”
