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.
