Bayern: Philippe Coutinho moves to Munich - a legend has to give way

Bayern manages a transfer coup with Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian makes the followers of Munich be euphoric. However, a club legend will be in dire straits because of the player profile of the 27-year-old noble technician.

"With this player, we offer our fans something spectacular," enthused Salihamidzic on the sidelines of the Bundesliga opener against Hertha BSC. But not only those responsible, but also the players expressed words of relief given the commitment of Philippe Coutinho. "This is a top player, and such players can make the difference in the season, whether you win something or not," added Robert Lewandowski.

The Bavarians have pulled their longed-for star player ashore. Niko Kovac will be delighted - Coutinho is an internationally experienced player who combines game intelligence and creativity, has an exquisite technique, scores a fatal pass and still scores goals. In short: a ten, as it is in the textbook.

Club legend must be worried

With the arrival of the 27-year-old, especially a club legend must be seriously worried: Thomas Müller. The Munich veteran is probably the one who has to give way to Coutinho. On the wings, Müller looks more like a foreign body, which can not really play its strengths in this position. The "Raumdeuter" works best in the middle behind the tips.


But this task is now probably the responsibility of the Brazilian, which "will benefit the whole offensive," said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. The question arises, which place the club legend Müller will take? Presumably it will become more and more often the bank from now on.

It only remains as a substitute

The wings are well stocked with Kingsley Coman, Serge Gnabry, Ivan Perisic and Alphonso Davies. Robert Lewandowski in the center of attack and Philippe Coutinho in the attacking midfield seem to be settled - and considering the two remaining midfield positions with Thiago Alcántara, Javi Martínez, Corentin Tolisso, Leon Goretzka and Mickael Cuisance anyway an overbooking.

For Müller then probably only the role of substitute for Lewandowski or Coutinho - a regular place in the Munich star ensemble seems excluded. After 488 games, 185 goals and 167 assists for Bayern, the sporting future of club legend Müller is probably in the stars.
