- Phillipe Coutinho had a simple but meaningful baptism in his own bathtub
- The occasion was graced by renowned pastor Tiago Brunet
- The Brazilian ace took to social media to announce his joy in the new milestone
Bayern Munich on-loan star Phillipe Coutinho followed the example of fellow Brazilian teammate Willian as he recently got baptized, albeit in odd fashion.
While many Christians opt to conduct the religious rite in divine settings, the former Liverpool man had his baptism take place in his own home, inside his own bathtub.
The 27-year-old was baptized alongside his lovely wife Aine in an occasion that was conducted by renowned Brazilian pastor Tiago Brunet.
Coutinho, on loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona, took to social media to thank Brunet and his wife as he expressed excitement at his admission to the church.
"Thank you very much Pastor Brunet and Jeanine Brunet.. It was two more than special days that were marked in our lives. Let's live a new era," he wrote on social media.
The winger followed in the example of teammate William, whose baptism was a bit more extravagant.
Willian visited the popular River Jordan in Israel in June 2019 and he made the most of the occasion by immersing himself in the river for divine purposes.
The Chelsea attacker was quick to endorse Coutinho’s baptism by commenting using two praying hand emojis on his post.
