Liverpool have made some impressive signings over the years. Some transfers which absolutely transformed the club. In recent years we can point to the arrivals of Mo Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker. One of the biggest statement signings the club has made in the last century was made this summer and he’s now back at Melwood. Liverpool fans have been drooling at photos of Thiago in training.

Signing of the century

For me anyway, Thiago is the signing of the century for Liverpool.

In terms of profile and circumstance we have not made a more marquee signing in my lifetime. We went out and signed the Champions League winner’s best midfielder, a midfielder with an embarrassment of trophies, regarded as one of the best in the world.

Sure, we’ve made signings who have gone on to be world class – here we bagged a ready made world class player.

The Spanish midfielder missed the humiliating defeat at Aston Villa after testing positive for COVID-19.

Thankfully, the playmaker has recovered well and is now back in training ahead of a monumental Merseyside Derby.

We simply have to beat the Ev at the weekend, anything less could be calamitous given the two side’s league positions.

Kopites react to Thiago in training

One supporter was particularly enthusiastic.

Another was made up to see him back.

It’s great to see him healthy and recovered.

Surely the Ev can’t handle a player like him.

The verse to the Thiago song..

Ok, this one got a giggle out of me.
