Wijnaldum: Liverpool and Thiago are the ‘perfect match’

Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum believes that the club’s capture of Thiago Alcantara is ‘a perfect match’.

After winning seven consecutive Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich, the Spain international opted for pastures new, completing a £20 million move to Premier League champions, Liverpool.

While Jurgen Klopp possesses one of the most feared attacking trio’s in world football, as well as two of the most creative full-backs, the Reds energetic midfield has often been described as ‘workmanlike’.

The arrival of Thiago looks set to add greater creativity to the Reds’ ranks, and fellow midfielder Wijnaldum believes that the addition of the 29-year-old is a ‘perfect match’.

“Everything impressed me,” he told “I saw him play for years now, I played against him when we played against Bayern, and the awareness he has on the pitch, the confidence he has on the ball and the way he manages to let the team play is unbelievable.

“He’s such a quality player that is going to make this team even better than we were before. So, I’m really happy, everyone is really happy, to have him here. He’s also happy to be here.

“I think it’s a perfect match: Liverpool and Thiago.”
