Philippe Coutinho insists he's feeling well at Bayern München and suggests things are moving in the right direction for both him and the team even if he might not be playing as much as he would ideally like to.

"I haven't been here long, so it takes time to adapt to a new culture, but my family is happy and I'm happy," the Barcelona loanee told Sports Illustrated.


"We had a slow start, but now we're at a good place. This is a complicated league, difficult with many teams fighting for the top, but we're doing well. We're eager to win it for the fans and to continue like this. We have to take it match by match and step by step," Coutinho said.

Despite starting three league games in a row on the bench under Hansi Flick, Coutinho underlines he's pleased with his coach.

"He is working so hard, and thanks to him the team is playing well and that's what's most important. It can't be easy to manage a team like Bayern München, and I think he came in and has been doing a great job," Coutinho said.

Bayern could trigger a €125 million release clause to turn Coutinho's loan deal into a permanent one.
