Philippe Coutinho has revealed he received a message of support from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp following his move to Bayern Munich this summer.

The Brazil international was heavily linked with a return to the Premier League and reports have claimed that the midfielder preferred to return to Liverpool.

But Coutinho ended up joining Bayern on a season-long loan, while the German champions have the option to buy him from Barcelona for €120 million (£109.8m).

And Klopp was pleased to see his former player make the move to the Bundesliga.

He sent me a message and wished me luck, Coutinho told SportBild.
