Liverpool have spent the past few months convincing us all that there was no money. We were told time and again that signings would be hard to come by as a result of the financial impact of the global health crisis. However, the Reds have decided to go off on one this week, bringing in two major signings. There is one video which is perfect for getting Liverpool fans excited about Thiago.
Liverpool sign Thiago
Kopites have been on tenterhooks all summer, waiting to see if the club would make a move for one of the best midfielders in the world.
At the start of the summer rumours first surfaced that Liverpool were interested in Thiago after he purportedly told Bayern Munich he wasn’t interested in signing a new contract at the Allianz Arena.
Given that he was entering the final year of his deal this gave the Reds an opening to negotiate a transfer at a bargain price.
Eventually, Liverpool signed Thiago, one of the best midfielders in the world, for just £20m with £5m in bonuses.
A year ago, the Bundesliga put out a video on their YouTube channel highlighting just why Thiago was so valuable to Bayern Munich.
The video begins with a famous quote from Pep Guardiola, “Thiago or nothing”, before showcasing the Spaniard’s inventive, defence splitting assists.
We are then shown just how crucial he is in stopping the opposition, halting attacks on the edge of his box. The analysis also picks up on how he is an expert in transitions, as well as how effective he is when breaking the opposition press.
The video is a comprehensive celebration of just how gifted a player Liverpool have signed. Kopites everywhere should watch, enjoy and get excited for what the Spaniard will be doing in our midfield.
