Luis Garcia cooments on Thiago Alcantara’s inclusion in the Liverpool squad
Garcia looks quite impressed with the Liverpool midfielder. Thiago Alcantara, who has immense experience to control the pace of the game.
Being a part of the winning campaign with the German giants Bayern Munich, Thiago knows his responsibilities pretty well. Speaking about Thiago’s inclusion in the Liverpool squad, Garcia said
“he’s a player who, when he is on the ball, is always effective. When he’s on the field you can see the other players look for him because he’s the one who can make that difference. That last pass in-between the lines. I’m sure he’s going to be an important player during the season.”
However, looking at his age, it might not be possible for Klopp to start him every game. Moreover, Luis Garcia understands that playing an intense game every 3 days might not be possible for the Spanish midfielder.
Next up for Liverpool is a Premier League game against Crystal Palace at Anfield on this Saturday.
