Thiago Reveals Liverpool Legend Told Him Why He Should Not Touch The 'This Is Anfield' Sign
And Thiago has already made an immediate impact to life at Liverpool as he broke a Premier League record in Liverpool's 2-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The former Bayern star has also recognised the importance of the club off the pitch and how Torres told him not to touch the This Is Anfield sign until he wins trophies at Liverpool.
"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 while looking 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."
Jurgen Klopp shared the same stance as Thiago over the 'This Is Anfield' sign when he arrived as Liverpool boss in 2015.
The 53-year-old German manager told his players they weren't allowed to touch the sign until they've won something with Liverpool.
"I've told my players not to touch the 'This Is Anfield' sign until they win something. It's a sign of respect," Klopp said.
