After four years Thiago Alcantara has decided to leave Liverpool

Jakarta (ANTARA) – Liverpool player Thiago Alcantara has decided to leave the Reds at the end of this season, making him a free transfer after working together for four seasons since being brought in from Bayern Munich in September 2020.

The Spanish midfielder bid farewell to Liverpool after winning the FA Cup and League Cup in the 2021/2022 season with a total of 98 appearances in all competitions and scoring three goals and six assists in four seasons.

“Grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this city, this club and this community. “The continuous support I have received since day one has been extraordinary: the applause at Anfield, the Kop chants… extraordinary, extraordinary,” Thiago said, as quoted by the club’s official website, on Friday.

“The last four years have been a learning period for me and my family. “There are winners, there are losers, but without a doubt this is a life-changing experience,” she added.

Thiago made his Reds debut to the delight of fans after breaking the record when Chelsea visited Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on 20 September 2020.

Coming off the bench in the second half to contribute to the 2-0 victory, Thiago completed an incredible 75 passes, the most in a single half according to Opta.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, who will end his career with Liverpool this season, said it was “an honour” to have Thiago in his team for four seasons.

Although Thiago’s career was spent in the operating theatre, Klopp said, whenever the midfielder was available “his level of play was extraordinary”.

“Technically he is very, very good. “A talent who can play in any team in the world and it is an honor to have him with us,” Klopp said.

“I know the injuries were frustrating for him and for us too, but his level of play when he was available was incredible. That’s what I will remember,” he added.

It is not yet known where the 33-year-old creative midfielder will land upon his next return home.

But wherever the former FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich player goes, Klopp will be happy to see him play because according to him he is “an artist of the game who will paint only the most beautiful pictures”.
