Brazil international Julio Cesar believes that his former Inter Milan teammate Philippe Coutinho has the right attributes to become a huge success at Liverpool.

The Queens Park Rangers goalkeeper played alongside Coutinho for the Italian giants and after being recalled to the Brazil side may well have the opportunity to once again share a pitch with the 20-year-old.

Coutinho never became a regular starter for Inter during his spell in Italy, but there were glimpses of the talent he possessed and Cesar is convinced that he will become a star for Liverpool.

"I hope he can do well in a Liverpool shirt. I send him my best wishes for his new adventure at Liverpool," Cesar told the official Liverpool website.

"I am convinced that he will prove his quality because off the pitch he really is a golden boy and he'll be able to assert himself."

The attacking midfielder opened his account for Liverpool on his full Premier League debut against Swansea City and will be hoping to force his way into the first team plans of Brendan Rodgers on a regular basis.

He made his debut for Brazil back in October 2010 when he was still just a teenager and will be looking to prove with Liverpool that he deserves another chance in the national team as he still just has the one appearance to his name.

With Liverpool solely concentrating on improving their league form and climbing up the table, Coutinho will have a huge part to play and is likely to come up against Cesar on the final day of the season when QPR travel to Anfield.

It could well be an important game for both clubs with Liverpool hoping to qualify for Europe, while Cesar will be hoping that QPR have some chance of survival going into the final game of the campaign.
