BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Two months after helping Bayern Munich hand Barcelona its most humbling loss in decades, Philippe Coutinho is helping the Spanish club rebuild. After a season-and-a-half of failing to meet the huge expectations placed upon him, his relationship with Barcelona hit a low point when he seemed to taunt the team's fans by plugging his fingers in his ears after scoring his finest goal with the team in a 3-0 win over Manchester United. Hoping that a temporary move would be good for the player, and possibly the club's chances to eventually sell him, Barcelona loaned Coutinho to Bayern in 2019. At that point, it would have been difficult to imagine that in the last game of Barcelona's season it would be Coutinho who scored two goals against the club that owned his rights. While Barcelona went home broken, Bayern went on to win the European Cup. His goals for Bayern, ironically, may have helped him regain his post in Barcelona. Incoming coach Ronald Koeman wanted Coutinho to come back and play, unlike a long list of players that the club sold or practically gave away to make way for new faces and reduce a heavy salary burden. He has demonstrated that he is a great player, and I am happy to have him with us," Koeman said about Coutinho after he scored in a 1-1 draw with Sevilla two weeks ago. He set up Fati to score two goals in a 4-0 win over Villarreal to open the season and in a 3-0 win at Celta Vigo. Coutinho then scored his first goal since returning to the team against Sevilla before a break for international matches, where he played well for Brazil in two World Cup qualifying wins. "I am motivated to work hard and do things well, to achieve important things for this club," Coutinho said after his goal against Sevilla. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting enjoyed a successful Bayern Munich debut, scoring two goals and setting up another in a 3-0 win over amateurs Duren in the German Cup first round on Thursday.
