Klopp ‘deserves a medal for getting Thiago to Liverpool’ ex-star tells fans
Jurgen Klopp “deserves a medal” for getting Thiago Alcantara to Liverpool, says Danny Murphy.
After months of speculation about his future after news broke that Thiago wanted to leave Bayern, he is now on his way to sign with Liverpool and add a different dimension to the Anfield squad.
The move would arguably be considered one of the bargain buys of the transfer window, as the Spaniard will be signed for a fee less than £30 million, half of what he is actually worth in todays transfer market
Liverpool fans were delighted to welcome Thiago onto their books, and Murphy claims that Klopp needs a medal for getting this deal done, the Ex-Reds midfielder Murphy told the Football Index Podcast of that business: “I think Thiago is an unbelievable acquisition because he is one of the only players in Europe who could improve Liverpool’s midfield.
“Even at 29 years old, he will give Liverpool at least three or four years and it was a brilliant bit of business for the fee involved as well.
“I first watched Thiago at Barcelona and the game looked effortless for him. Thiago is a midfielder that can dictate the tempo of a match like [Paul] Scholes used to, and there aren’t many of them about.
“Thiago has the ability to always have time on the ball because of the movement he does to create space. He very rarely loses the ball when he is pressed because of his awareness.
“Thiago is an absolute steal at that price. Klopp deserves a medal for convincing him because the Liverpool fans are going to adore him.”
We have said it before and we will say it again, we cannot wait to see what Thiago brings to the Premier League, he is a very classy player that many clubs would have loved to have in their squads.
