Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara tweeted an image of his ‘new season preps’ on Friday afternoon, and it’s fair to say it went down well with the Anfield faithful.
Thiago linked back up with his team-mates on 28 July after featuring for semi-finalists Spain at the European Championships.
He was unable to play a part in the Reds’ 60-minute friendlies against Serie A side Bologna on Thursday due to a minor fitness concern.
How serious is Thiago’s issue?
In an interview with the club’s official site, he explained that he is trying to limit muscular discomfort but said he is aiming to be fit for Liverpool’s season opener against Norwich on 14 August. The shot of him training, then, will certainly be encouraging for fans.
Meanwhile, fellow midfielder Fabinho provided the Reds with a boost by playing 30 minutes against Bologna. The Brazilian, along with Alisson Becker and Roberto Firmino, had only returned from his holiday the previous Sunday.
Liverpool have two more friendlies pencilled in before the Premier League kick-off, facing Athletic Bilbao and Osasuna at Anfield on Sunday and Monday respectively.
Liverpool fans buzzing over Thiago image
“He’s gonna rip the league apart next week onwards”
“yes laaaa!!!!! good to see you back maestro”
“Welcome back king”
“Let’s go goat!! Big season incoming”
“What a thing of beauty you are Thiagoooo”
