The Bayern Munich midfielder praised his Brazilian team-mate

Thiago Alcantara has returned to training in Germany with Bayern Munich with the league working on a re-start. The player also spoke to La Vanguardia, in which he praised Barcelona's Philippe Coutinho.

The midfielder is on loan at Bayern, where he has failed to shine.

"I know him well, he's very good. I've seen him play since he was 12 years old. I played against him in Brazil at football sala and I loved him. He lacks nothing. I like to play with players at a top level and he's a phenomenon. He's a great guy, really hard working, with unbeatable technique and incredible finishing. Players go through good moments and some not so good ones and he brings us a lot. We hope he's here next season too."
