#AskThiago: Liverpool midfield maestro answers fans’ questions on Gerrard, Alonso and funniest teammate


Five months after he agreed to join Liverpool from Bayern Munich in a €26m transfer fee, Thiago Alcantara sat down to answer the questions of the club’s faithful.

Thiago Alcantara has claimed that he couldn’t pick between Steven Gerrard and Xabi Alonso and would rather ‘pick both’, before adding that both were legends at ‘this club’.

The Liverpool playmaker was answering fans’ questions in the #AskThiago (Ask Thiago) session organized by his new club on YouTube. Many Reds’ faithful were urging their side to organize the session ever since Thiago completed his move to the Merseyside from Bavaria in August last year.

Here’s what he stated in response to several questions:

  • Inspiration growing up? The 29-year-old claimed that it was his dad, former Brazil international Mazinho, who inspired him the most growing up.

 

  • Thoughts on facing Liverpool with Bayern in 2018 Champions League? Thiago claimed that he was motivated by the atmosphere inside Anfield during that game.

 

  • Dream five-a-side team with Thiago in it? Rafinha – Rodrigo – Thiago (himself) – Dos Santos – David De Gea

 

  • Retired midfielder Thiago would love to play alongside? Thiago claims he’d love to play alongside Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard.

 

  • Favorite movie or series of all time? Gladiator, Breaking Bad, F.R.I.E.N.D.S, Entourage

 

  • Funniest teammate in the Liverpool squad? ‘One hundred percent’ Andy Robertson.

 

  • Favorite Beatles Song? Hey Jude
