- Coutinho flopped at Barcelona before the club sold him on loan to Bayern Munich
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained that he advised Brazilian star Philippe Coutinho to join Bayern Munich on loan from Barcelona.
Philippe Coutinho's loan move surprised many football fans considering how he was strongly linked with a return to the Premier League or Paris-Saint-Germain.
He made a big money move from Liverpool to Barcelona, but when he got to Camp Nou, he struggled for form which masterminded his exit.
Even last season, Barcelona fans were furious with the Brazilian because of his performance against Liverpool in the Champions League semifinal.

According to the report on UK Sun, Jurgen Klopp has now revealed what he told Philippe Coutinho before he joined Bayern Munich.
"I personally told him that Bayern and him would be a good fit.
"He's a world class player and a really good signing for Bayern - and the Bundesliga.
“It may sound strange, but we didn’t have enough money to get him. We’d already spent all the money we got for him,'' Klopp told Bild according to UK Sun.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Philippe Coutinho expressed desire to stay at Bayern Munich 'for a long time' after joining them from Barcelona on a loan this summer.
The Bundesliga champions signed the Brazilian attacker for a deal around £7.78 million, and will have a chance to sign the player on a permanent deal for about £110 million next summer.
