Bayern München interim coach Hansi Flick says it might take some time for Philippe Coutinho to find his top level at Allianz Arena.

When asked about the Barcelona loanee ahead of Saturday's clash with Bayer Leverkusen, Flick told reporters:

"It's important that he plays in a position where can show off his technical strength and quality in the last pass.

"Sometimes, it's good to give a player some time. He came to us without much preparation. He has done well so far," Flick said.

Coutinho has started the last two games under Flick.
