Tue 23 November 2021 | 18:38

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has ruled out rumors linking him with a return to Barcelona, insisting he is completely happy with his choice to sign for the Premier League club.

Xavi Hernandez

has returned to the Camp Nou as manager and is said to have targeted the midfielder as one of his first additions.

The Spain international has had a spell overshadowed with injuries since his move to Anfield from

Bayern Munich

in 2020, with a knee injury ruling him out for several months.

He made just 24 appearances in the Premier League last season, starting 20 of them, scoring once.

More injury problems have limited the 30-year-old to eight appearances this season across all competitions. However, he appears to be recovering his finest form.

Pressed on the speculation linking him with

Barcelona

 ahead of

Liverpool

’s Champions League clash with

Porto

,

Thiago

told reporters:

"As always, I am a guy who plays football.

"I am not focused on the rumors, I am focused on the duty I have with my team, the years that I have on the contract and I just want to know about this new adventure that I have here in the Premier League, trying to win all the trophies that I can with this team."

"One hundred percent I made the right choice, the right move,"

he added when asked if he had any doubts over his move to the Premier League due to the amount of injuries he has sustained

.

"The injuries stop the frequency to play, and to know how the team performs on the pitch.

"You can watch football and all the time it's awesome but putting it into practice is even better. It's a pity football has [injuries] but it's part of football, part of life, when we are fit we have to put in as high performances as we can.

"I think the first year was very interrupted because of the COVID situation, injury. I had a quick adaptation. We struggled last season, for many reasons.

"This year, you know much better your teammates, the runs that they make, the way they prefer to receive the ball, the way they defend, how they attack. To me the most important thing is to try to win in the way we want to win."
