Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has hailed the qualities of recent signing Philippe Coutinho, explaining how he can help them perform on the biggest stages.

Former Liverpool star Coutinho joined Bayern on loan recently, with the German champions having the option to buy him for €120m if he convinces during his time there.

The Brazilian has been well received at the Bundesliga club, where he has taken Arjen Robben’s old number 10 shirt and will be hoping to replicate what the now-retired Dutchman achieved in Munich.

There have been claims from Bild that striker Lewandowski has been impressed enough by the ambition shown by Coutinho’s signing that he is set to agree a new contract himself.

Now, the Polish forward has told the same publication just exactly what Coutinho will bring to the table.

“He brings us madness, unpredictability,” Lewandowski is quoted as saying. “He has an absurd ability in the last pass and we know he can become key in winning important games, especially in the Champions League.

“His presence will make us more dangerous and then he knows how to play both from number ten position and from the wings as well.”
