Bayern Munich chief executive, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said he is very pleased with Philippe Coutinho’s performances this season since he joined the German club from Barcelona.
Ernesto Valverde felt the Brazilian was not needed ahead of the 2019-20 campaign and Bayern paid for a loan move, which has, thus far, been a good piece of business.
Speaking recently, Karl-Heinz has said he is happy with Philippe’s contribution this early in the season.
His words, “Philippe is a high-quality player.
“Philippe has no star attitudes. He is a very pleasant person and he is very popular throughout the club.
“We are very satisfied with the transfer.”
On what next after the loan move, “We will decide about that when the right point in time has arrived.”
