Liverpool Fans Are Loving Thiago's Confidence In Training Clips

Liverpool fans are loving the confidence Thiago Alcantara is displaying in training.

Fresh from breaking a record for the most passes in 45 minutes when he made his Premier league debut in the win over Chelsea last week, the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich midfielder is in line to make his first start in the visit of Arsenal on Monday.

A day after the 7-2 Carabao Cup win over Lincoln City, Thiago and the rest of Jurgen Klopp's squad trained on Friday.

The club have posted an 'Inside Training' video and Reds fans like what they saw from the Spaniard. He was smooth as ever showing off some skills before effortlessly keeping the ball up in the air with Diogo Jota and Gini Wijnaldum in seperate clips.

Another clip saw him receive some praise from assistant manager Pep Lijnders, who could be heard shouting: "Thiago! That's football! Good boy!"

Thiago really is a lovely player to watch and for an initial fee of £20 million, he looks set to be a wonderful addition to a title-winning midfield.

He comes in after playing a key role in Bayern Munich's historic treble win under Hansi Flick, adding to an impressive trophy-haul, but the 29-year-old is essentially starting over here in England.

In fact, he's revealed he won't be touching the iconic 'This is Anfield' sign until he wins a trophy with Liverpool - following some advice from compatriot and former Reds striker Fernando Torres.

"As I heard once from Fernando Torres, this remains heavily the place we passed by for a couple of years, four more years," Thiago said as he looked up at the sign.

"And to touch this symbol we have to deserve it and to win all the trophies we can and so that's why today I will not [touch the sign]. I will respect this tradition."
