The Spanish midfielder is criticized. The team coach protects Thiago Alcantara.
The reigning English champions paid 22 million in exchange for Thiago Alcantara in September 2020 and signed a contract with him until 2024. The Spanish midfielder does not really stand out with good statistics in the Premier League.
He played in 11 matches and did not score a goal. The Spaniard also failed to score. Part of the media and fans, he criticized. The MARCA edition quotes the words of the German captain of “Merseyside”, Jürgen Klopp, where he defends Thiago from this criticism.
“They talk a lot of nonsense. They cannot even comprehend it. Thiago had a coronavirus. Then he got an injury, and you have to take into account that he is on a new team where he needs time to adapt. The virus and the injury obviously prevented that.
Those who criticize him are not right. Thiago Alcantara can show the best qualities, and it will happen. “There are no question marks about it,” said Jürgen Klopp.
