Swansea boss Laudrup: Pozuelo can match Liverpool's Coutinho

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup is convinced Alejandro Pozuelo will light up the Premier League.

The Dane is happy to liken Pozuelo to Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho.

Laudrup told the South Wales Echo: "Alex has a lot of talent. He is a player that you can see he is still young, but he has so much quality with two feet. He still has to learn a lot of things and we have to bring him forward - and that's what we will do.

"But I think he can do here what Coutinho has done at Liverpool. I remember when Coutinho arrived from Inter he had a lot to learn, but now he is one of the most important players at Liverpool.

"With time, Pozuelo can do the same here because he has the same ability with the ball, same ability in finding space, being good one-on-one and having very good vision, and we know he has two good feet because we don't know if he is right or left footed."
