Thiago Alcantara reveals his surprising dream 5-a-side team

Thiago Alcantara has revealed his dream five-a-side team, as well as reflecting on his first experience of Anfield.

Thiago ended a seven-year, trophy-laden spell with Bayern Munich at the end of last season, opting to sign for Liverpool in September, but he has had limited involvement due to a knee injury.

Recently, he partook in a #AskThiago event on Liverpool's social media channels, during which he was asked to select his dream five-a-side team. He provided a surprising answer, saying: "I always say that, more than the best players, I will always choose the best chemistry and the best friends I have in football.

"My brother Rafinha, Rodrigo Moreno, who plays for Leeds. Jonathan dos Santos who plays for LA Galaxy in the USA and David de Gea who plays for Manchester United. As well as myself, I think that’s the five-a-side I would choose. The only problem is that someone has to defend, but it’s okay!"

It seems he knows little about the rivalry between Manchester United and Liverpool, because David de Gea would surely not be mentioned!
