Man City goalkeeper Ederson: Coutinho makes Bayern Munich among Champions League favourites

Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson is delighted for Philippe Coutinho over his move to Bayern Munich.

Coutinho left Barcelona for Bayern last month.

And Ederson told BILD of his Brazil teammate: "Bayern is always a great team. Now with Coutinho they definitely belong among the title favourites in the Champions League.

"Coutinho is a brilliant player. Unfortunately, it was not as good for him in Barcelona as it was in Liverpool. At Bayern he can now show his football again and be really happy again.

"He has played twice for Bayern. I hope it will continue and help him to realise and develop his full potential."
