Mane excited by Thiago ‘magic’ at Liverpool as he hails playmaker as ‘one of the best' in the world

Thiago Alcantara Liverpool 2020-21

Sadio Mane is excited bythe 'magic'possessed by Thiago Alcantara, with Liverpool considered to have acquired themselves “one of the best" in the worldin the Spain international playmaker.

Thiago was allowing his contract to run down at Bayern Munich and, fresh from helping the German giants to a remarkable treble, opened himself up to a new challenge in the Premier League.

Injury issues have prevented him from making the desired impact at Anfield, but the 29-year-old is now back to full fitness and ready to build on the promising cameos he has put in to this point.

Mane is expecting the former Barcelona star to thrive in England, telling Liverpool’s official website of a talented team-mate: “I always said Thiago is one of the best in his position in the world, for sure.

“He was unlucky with the injury, but now he is coming back. It is not easy to come back from an injury and be 100 per cent on the pitch, but you can see Thiago and his quality.

“From his first game I was impressed because I didn’t think he would bethatimpressive on the pitch! It is coming slowly, slowly and I think he is reaching his best level, which is very good for us and for Liverpool Football Club. I can’t wait.”

Mane added: “We have many great players in midfield and Thiago is one of them. He has this quality of pass, which is another advantage for our front three because we can see how good he is in passing.

“I think this makes the team even better. We are looking forward to seeing more of this – his magic! – to help the team together.”

Thiago is in contention to figure from the off when Liverpool take on old adversaries Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday, but Klopp faces selection posers all over the field after working hard to add depth to his star-studded squad.

“Yes, not only in midfield,” Mane said of the competition for places.

“I think we have a great team, which is a good thing for everyone. We have a lot of competition, which is great for the team and for the club.
