Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick has confirmed Thiago Alcantara will be joining Liverpool.
"Thiago is an extraordinary player and was very important for us,” said Flick at a press conference ahead of Friday’s Bundesliga clash with Schalke which will herald the start of the new German season. My coaching team and I enjoyed working with him. It was very emotional as we said goodbye. I can only congratulate Liverpool as they got a great player and especially a great person. Thiago gave the team a lot of options and made us unpredictable, he solved things in ways you don’t expect. Now we’re losing yet another great player." - Flick
