Ex Germany manager, Berti Vogts has questioned Philippe Coutinho’s move to Bayern Munich.
He said the Brazilian might not be the world star that he used to be so the Barca fans should not rejoice yet.
The ex Liverpool player joined Bayern on Monday in a one-year loan switch from Barcelona, with the Bundesliga champions holding a €120 million (£110m/$133m) purchase option.
However, Berti is not happy that Bayern Munich are buying a player who is not worth the hype.
His words, “At first glance, the loan from Coutinho is a great signing for the Bundesliga,”
“But I want to ask a question: Why is a 27-year-old leaving a world club like FC Barcelona? Because he has given up the hope to prevail there.
“Maybe he’s not a world star, but a player who – probably in the new season – would be a substitute for FC Barcelona.”
On Bayern signing Cuisance, he also said, “I have not been able to form a conclusive judgment on Cuisance,”
“His great talent is evident, but that’s not all in football.
“On the other hand, his behavior bothers me. According to (Monchengladbach) sports director Max Eberl, he internally demanded a guarantee of a regular place, as if there could be something like this for 20-year-olds at an ambitious Bundesliga club.
“And then he moves to Bayern Munich, where his chances of action are likely to be even lower.”
