SOT, Philippe Coutinho, FC Bayern Munich player (Portugese): "Naturally it is a big responsibility to be able to wear the jersey of Bavaria, for a club with a long tradition, because of the players who have belonged to the club, like Arjan Robben who has a big history in football. And for me, too, I know that I have a lot of work to do, but I believe that I can work quietly here and can also respond with good football on the field, as far as the expectations of the club and also of the fans are concerned."
