Many of us—especially of the American persuasion—are in need of a pick-me-up this morning.

So while we wait for more details with the other massive transfer news, we can enjoy the eminently likeable comments from the eminently likeable Carlo Ancelotti about Liverpool’s recent transfer of Thiago.

“Breaks my heart, breaks my heart,” Ancelotti told reporters. “Thiago is a friend. He is a fantastic player, a fantastic midfielder. I had the luck in my career to train top, top players and Thiago is one of them.

“The only good thing about this signing is that he is a neighbour and that’s it. I think he chose the wrong team.

“He could choose the blue team, not the red team. I am joking. He is a fantastic player and my friend, Jurgen, will be happy.”

As much as I hate the idea of Everton, you know, actually being good, I can’t help but love Ancelotti. He’s a class act, and Merseyside is lucky to have two of the best and most likeable managers in the business.

Now with that light-hearted story out of the way, I’m sure Liverpool Twitter will wait very patiently for Diogo Jota to get over the line. #AnnounceJota.
