Champions League winner Coutinho: I need to talk with Barcelona

Philippe Coutinho admits he needs to consider his future after helping Bayern Munich win the Champions League.

In the aftermath of his Champions League success, the Brazilian confirmed that his future is up in the air once he returns to parent club Barcelona.

"Of course, I have to go back to Barcelona and then we'll see what happens," Coutinho explained in an interview with Movistar+ after Sunday's final.

"I haven't really thought about it much, I've only been focused on the final.

"What I can say is that I really want to work hard to have a great year, but let's see what happens."

Coutinho takes a Champions League winner's medal back to the Camp Nou with him, which will somewhat make up for the pain felt by the fact Liverpool had won the trophy just after he left.

"We had a great season and we are very happy," he added.

"We've deserved this and it's a special feeling.

"I'm finding it hard to describe, I'm very happy and we are going to enjoy this a lot today."
