Thiago Alcantara has revealed the football team of his dreams, as well as reflecting on his first experience at Anfield, during an interesting interview.
Thiago finished a seven-year trophy-laden season with Bayern Munich at the end of last season, opting to join Liverpool in September. Since then, his involvement with the Reds has been limited due to a knee injury from which he has recently recovered. However, when he has played, his technically competent performances have earned him many fans.
Recently, he participated in a #AskThiago event on Liverpool’s social media channels, during which he was asked to select the football team of his dreams.
He provided a surprising response, saying: “I always say that, more than the best players, I will always choose the best chemistry and the best friends that I have in football.”
“My brother Rafinha, Rodrigo Moreno, who plays for Leeds. Jonathan dos Santos, who plays for LA Galaxy in the United States, and David de Gea, who plays for Manchester United. Besides me, I think that’s the five-player team that would do “The only problem is that someone has to defend, but that’s okay!”
Although no Liverpool player was included in his dream team, Thiago spoke warmly about both the club and the city during the interview. He also reflected on his first experience with the Anfield crowd, when Bayern faced the Reds in a Champions League round of 16 match in 2019.
“We were facing a great team and in all areas it was strong, defending, attacking. When we entered the stadium it was incredible before the game to hear the chants and also hear the Champions League anthem.
“You just motivate yourself for the game, it was an incredible feeling,” he said.
