Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been continuing his journey back to full fitness and has now dropped an intriguing post on Instagram.
Thiago on the mend
The 29-year-old Anfield star has been recovering from a knee injury that he picked up during his side’s 2-2 draw against Everton back in October.
Thiago, who former Red Xabi Alonso previously described as “fabulous”, has seen very little action in a red shirt so far since his £20m summer move from Bayern Munich, playing just 135 minutes of Premier League action with one start (Whoscored).
Posting on Instagram, Thiago shared an update on his ongoing fitness condition, with an image of himself hard at work in the gym.

Naby Keita and Joel Matip both recently returned to action in Liverpool’s 7-0 thrashing of Crystal Palace at the weekend, with Thiago not far behind them.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
The closer Thiago comes to returning, the more excited the supporters will get, and this will be no different.
The Spaniard was a hugely anticipated signing when he arrived at the club in the summer and the Kop faithful will be desperate to see him in action once more.
Thiago is not expected to be back for next weekend’s clash with West Brom, but as that fixture approaches, the fact that he is nearing his return will surely be a boost heading into the congested Christmas fixtures.
