Liverpool have made some smart signings down the years, few have made a statement as big as one of this summer’s buys. The Reds bringing in Thiago was greeted with euphoria, unfortunately for us he was absent for one of our biggest losses of recent decades due to illness. In excellent news for Liverpool fans Thiago has been pictured out and about in the city, meaning he’s out of self isolation.

Liverpool sign Thiago
In one of the most anticipated signings of the window, Liverpool bought Thiago Alcantara from Bayern Munich.
The Reds will pay the Germans a guaranteed £20m with £5m in potential add ons.
It was a move that Kopites had been praying for ever since the Reds’ interest was first reported early on the summer.
Entering the final year of his contract, Thiago was available on the cheap as the Bavarian side looked to avoid losing him on a free transfer the following summer.
Thiago self isolation
Prior to the international break Liverpool fans were heartbroken to learn that Thiago had tested positive for COVID-19.
The Spanish playmaker was sent scores of well wishes and was forced to self isolate until symptoms subsided and he fought off the illness.
His diagnosis saw him absent for the Reds’ humiliation at Villa Park with many Kopites hoping he’ll be back for Merseyside Derby.
This weekend Thiago was pictured in the Baltic quarter in Liverpool, confirming that he is out of self isolation.
What RTK has to say
Having Thiago back fit and healthy is great news, we’re made up he’s managed to overcome the horrible illness and is now able to explore his new home city.
Fingers crossed we’ll see him back in the midfield after the international break, we could do with his calming presence in the Derby following the calamity of Villa Park.
