Bayern fans greet Coutinho at training

By AAP Newswire

Philippe Coutinho has trained with his new Bayern Munich teammates for the first time, with rain not putting off around 1600 fans.

Along with the Brazilian, onlookers were also able to get a glimpse of fellow new arrival Michael Cuisance in Tuesday's session which focused on quick attacks.

Coutinho, 27, showed nice touches throughout but appeared tired by the bounce game towards the end. After helping Brazil to win the Copa America, he resumed training late with Barcelona before completing a loan move on Monday to the Bundesliga giants.

Coutinho and Cuisance, signed on Saturday from Borussia Moenchengladbach, might both be considered for Bayern debuts this weekend at Schalke.

Ivan Perisic, another loan signing from Inter Milan, is also available after being suspended for Friday's opening 2-2 draw with Hertha Berlin.

Leon Goretzka did not train, having missed that match with a thigh injury, while Corentin Tolisso worked alone in the gym.
