After Philippe Coutinho underwent surgery on an ankle injury in April, it has been suggested that he might not be able to feature for Bayern München again this season.

However, speaking to Kicker, Bayern coach Hansi Flick says that the Barcelona loanee could recover faster than 'initially feared'.

"Perhaps he can still be there in the final games of the season," Flick said.

The Brazilian international has made 32 appearances for Bayern this season, racking up nine goals and eight assists.
