Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has admitted he has so far underwhelmed as a Red fotoballer.
The Brazil-born Spanish star unexpectedly turned down a new Bayern Munich deal offer, in favour of a ‘love move’ to join Liverpool for €22,00m as one of the best central midfielders in the world.
But things do not always work out as predicted in football…
“I don't read a word about what people talk about me,” Thiago told TNT Sports Brasil.
“I know that I receive some criticism about my performances, but I'm not happy with my performance since I came here.
“A new club, a strange situation, I had a strong injury, so getting into the rhythm it was hard, but it's not an excuse,” the 29-year-old concluded.
Up next for Thiago and champions is a trip to Wolves next Monday.
