Bayern Munich manager, Hansi Flick has made known how emotional it was for Thiago to say goodbye to teammates on Thursday as his Anfield move draws ever near.
Thiago 29, just won a continental treble with Bayern Munich after defeating Paris St-Germain in Lisbon.
He contributed 3 goals, provided 2 assists in 40 appearances for the European Champions in the 2019-20 season.
These stats have shown little about his contribution but looking more at his individual contribution yields 90% pass accuracy, 1.88 tackles per game, and 1.88 interceptions show a great deal for an anchoring midfielder.
With his move to Anfield, Jurgen Klopp will have more options in the midfield especially with vision, passes, and experience Alcantara is coming with, he would be a great addition to EPL Champions already strong squad.
