Jose Enrique explains why Thiago Alcantara will be the signing of the season

Former Liverpool and Spain defender Jose Enrique believes Thiago Alcantara will shine alongside Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

“He’s a phenomenal player. He’s a top midfielder but he’s also a magician in the way that [Philippe] Coutinho was,” Enrique told the Daily Mail.

“It’s difficult to improve someone who is a top Bayern player but Thiago will learn new things. He will be, if not the signing, then certainly one of the signings of the season,” added the former left-back.

Meanwhile, Thiago is back from Covid-19 isolation and expected to be available when the champions take on city rivals Everton this weekend.
