Bayern München managed to bring in a big name towards the end of the summer transfer window by signing Philippe Coutinho on a season-long loan deal from Barcelona.

The former Liverpool midfielder wouldn't describe himself as a superstar, though.

"I don't feel like a superstar at all. I just want to do well in Munich and play my best football. I want to be the best Coutinho as I can be. I want to win and have big goals - the same goals as my team," Coutinho said in an interview with Sport Bild.

"My dream is to win the championship, the DFB-Pokal and the Champions League. No matter who we are up against. I just want to help the team," he added.

FC Barcelona paid €145 million to sign Coutinho from Liverpool in January 2018.
