“Liverpool’s new playmaker is a very fascinating kit,” says Jurgen Klopp further says that the new player Thiago Alcantara is “still a kid” when he has ownership of the ball.
“Thiago’s a really good football player, obviously,” Klopp told Sky Sports.
“You saw that against Chelsea. Certain things are natural to him that are not natural to other players, but without Thiago, we won the championship and we won the Champions League. He won it with Bayern, so I’d say it’s clearly a nice fit, but we have to get used to each other now.”
“In the football world, there are quite special aspects [he has that distinguish him from others]. His dream is incredible, mix that with pretty good technical skills, and great passing ability and stuff like that, and you have a very fascinating package. That is Thiago.”
“He couldn’t be happier as a person on top of that. It’s unbelievable, he’s always a kid when you give him a ball. When you take the ball away, he’s a very smart and knowledgeable football individual, who is involved in a number of things, strategy, and all these sorts of things. He needs to understand what’s really essential.”
