A number of Liverpool supporters have been praising Thiago’s latest performance for Spain, with the midfielder impressing for his country.
The 29-year-old was a hugely exciting arrival from Bayern Munich last September, having won the Champions League in 2019/20 and been one of the best midfielders in Europe.
It hasn’t been a dream start to life at Liverpool for Thiago yet, though, with a long injury layoff curtailing his progress during the autumn and winter.
Not only that, but the Spaniard has also been playing for a Reds side with no confidence and with central midfielders often playing at centre-back.
Despite a slightly underwhelming first year on Merseyside, there is no denying that Thiago is a wonderful footballer, though.
On Sunday night, the midfielder was introduced as a substitute in Spain’s 2-1 win away to Georgia, as the international break continues.
He produced an eye-catching cameo from the bench, helping turn the match around and outlining his quality on the ball (36 passes completed in 35 minutes) and reminding Liverpool fans what they can expect when he is on top form.
His performance suggests that he could be primed to have a big impact once Jurgen Klopp and his players reconvene later this week, ahead of Saturday’s trip to Arsenal.
Liverpool fans hail Thiago’s display
Here’s how some Reds fans reacted on Twitter to Thiago’s latest performance, with one Kopite describing it as “brilliant”.
“Thiago has been gorgeous since he came on for Spain. He’s genuinely a joy to watch. Gary Neville has an awful lot to answer for when it comes to people galaxy braining their analysis of him.“
“Thiago on and Spain equalized“
“It’s meaningless really, but it’s nice as a Liverpool fan to see Thiago come on and be the player that the Spanish national team – a footballing heavyweight – look to funnel their attack through and let be their general”
“He’s unreal! So happy we have him!“
