Bayern very happy with Coutinho transfer - Rummenigge

The Allianz Arena chief is pleased with how quickly the Brazilian has adapted to life in the Bundesliga since his loan switch from Barcelona.

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has been "very satisfied" with Philippe Coutinho's performances since his summer arrival from Barcelona.

The 27-year-old completed a season-long loan switch to Allianz Arena on August 16, after spending just one full season at Camp Nou.

Coutinho joined Barca from Liverpool after five successful years at Anfield for £140 million ($184m) in January 2018, but has failed to live up to expectations in Spain.

Ernesto Valverde deemed the Brazil international surplus to requirements ahead of the 2019-20 campaign and Bayern pounced on his uncertain position, which has, so far, proved a shrewd piece of business.

Coutinho has scored two goals and laid on three assists in seven Bundesliga outings, showing flashes of the brilliance which turned him into a household name at Liverpool.
