"Absolutely great - I'm really happy that it finally worked out and we could just do it," said Liverpool hero manager Jurgen Klopp. He continued; "I know all the people at Bayern wanted to keep him desperately. That's normal and understandable because he played an important role, in the last season as well. He just was ready for a new challenge and he decided for us."

Jurgen Klopp continues: "When we spoke about all the players, he respects them all massively. He admires them. "We played against him when we played Munich in the Champions League two years ago [Liverpool won 3-1 in the second leg of their last-16 tie after a 0-0 draw at Anfield], so he knows what kind of machine we can be and he wanted to be part of that."

Speaking further in his first Liverpool career interview, Thiago Alcantara added: "I must adapt to the team as fast as I can in the situation and the context that we are living right now. Everything is more compact and we started a little bit later, but still, it is football and I think we have to mix all the big things up, all the good things we have. I will help the team in a defensive and offensive [way] and also in a mental aspect."

Indeed, Liverpool FC needs a holding Midfielder of his Calibre and as per the tight schedules for this season, it would make perfect sense to get more players in for a healthy rotation. Thiago Alcantara's arrival makes sure of that for a team that plays with so much energy.
