Robert Lewandowski believes the arrival of Philippe Coutinho at Bayern Munich could fire the team to domestic and European glory.
According to Sport Bild, the Polish international seems to think the added dimension and skills that Brazillian Coutinho gives his side is a boost over both domestic and Champions League rivals.
There closest league rivals, Borussia Dortmund were busy and efficient in the summer and Lewandowski questioned Bayerns credentials if something wasn’t done soon.
“Dortmund did a lot [in the summer window], they have a big squad.”
But since the last couple of weeks transfer exploits by Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Hasan Salihamidzic. Lewandowski has a much more pragmatic outlook.
“But in the end it’s not about quantity, but about quality.”
“From that point of view it’s clear to me that we have the players of higher quality.”
He appears to be amazed by that quality in Philippe Coutinho.
“His [Coutinho’s] final ball is insane.”
“He can be the key in important games, especially in the Champions League.”
“He can give us that something special. It makes us more unpredictable [with Coutinho in the team], which makes us more dangerous.”
