had a very successful period at

Bayern Munich

but for some reason, he decided to leave the Bavarian club. He won a couple of trophies including the Bundesliga and Champions League last year in Germany. He joined Liverpool to help Jurgen Klopp defend the title which they have won after 30 years of trying.

Xabi Alonso

, former


, and Bayern Munich player consider Thiago one of the best midfielders in the world and backs him to repeat the success at the red side of Merseyside as well.

“I have loved watching Thiago Alcantara, the way he has been able to connect with the attacking players, helping to defend with his special qualities,” Alonso, who tasted Champions League glory with Liverpool in 2005, told UEFA’s official website.

“He’s a great friend, but above that, he’s become one of the best midfielders, and he’s a fabulous, intelligent, interesting, fun guy to be around in a training session and a dressing room.

“He loves football; he shows that with his personality and with the way he plays. He’s able to connect with his team-mates very easily. He’s done it fantastically at Bayern, and I feel that he’s going to do it in the same way at Liverpool, and I love it.”
