Want a 10-minutes fix of joy? The official site asked new Liverpool player Thiago Alcantara all of your burning questions. He admits that he hasn’t gotten to see much of Liverpool because of COVID. He also wisely prevaricates when asked to choose between two Liverpool legends, Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso, saying he’d want to partner with both of them, if given the opportunity.
He has yet to try to eat a bowl of Scouse, but he promises to give it a try.
It’s sad to realize that even though he’s played for Liverpool, he’s yet to get the full Anfield experience because of the pandemic. He is looking forward to hearing the singing from the Kop.
The least surprising answer he provided was that Andy Robertson is “100%” the funniest player on the team. Anyone who has watched his appearances alongside straight man James Milner knows how great a sense of humor Robbo possesses.
Now that we know a little bit more about the man, hopefully we get the opportunity to see him get some sustained minutes with the team on the pitch in the future.
