Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac said in a press conference today that loan signing Philippe Coutinho is not in great shape after arriving from Barcelona.
Kovac: "Coutinho no está en plena forma, le daremos tiempo"
"He still hasn't got the fitness he needs, he said so today and that is our impression too," said Kovac.
Coutinho played at the Copa America with Brazil and then went on holiday before returning to Barcelona training.
"We will not burn him up even though some people want us too," added the coach. With his comments, it seems that he will not feature at the weekend against Schalke.
