Philippe Coutinho scored his first goal and laid off his first assist for Bayern Munich last weekend as his side comfortably beat Cologne 4-0.
The Brazil midfielder scored from the spot after regular penalty-taker Robert Lewandowski – who had already netted twice – gave the former Liverpool midfielder the opportunity to get his first goal for ‘FC Hollywood’.
Coutinho, who joined the German champions on a season-long loan from Barcelona FC this summer after a frustrating 18 months at the Catalan club, then assisted fellow new arrival Ivan Perisic.
“It makes me furious, your mentality crap every week,” Reus told reporters, when asked whether his team had a mentality problem.
“Really. I mean we were dumb with the 2-2, but please don’t start with this mentality crap.”
Dortmund had a nine-point lead over Bayern Munich midway through last season before imploding after the winter break to see the Bavarians secure a seventh straight league title.
