Liverpool loanee Grujic: Coutinho will be the best player in Germany

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic says Philippe Coutinho will be the "best footballer in Germany" once he completes a move to Bayern Munich.

Coutinho is expected to complete a loan switch from Barcelona to Bayern this week.

Grujic, who is currently on loan at Hertha Berlin, played alongside Coutinho at Anfield and believes the Brazilian will thrive in Bundesliga.

"It's a big thing for the whole Bundesliga to have the possibility to see Coutinho play now," the Serbian told Bild.

"He is a special and exciting player, he does crazy things. He got incredible tricks and skills in his locker.

"I enjoyed every training session with him in Liverpool. He will be by far the best footballer in Germany."
