Liverpool hero Enrique: Klopp's never had a player like Thiago

Liverpool hero Jose Enrique is convinced Thiago Alcantara will make a big impact at Anfield.

Thiago left Bayern Munich for the Reds earlier this summer.

"He's a phenomenal player. He's a top midfielder but he's also a magician in the way that [Philippe] Coutinho was," Enrique told the Daily Mail.

"I can see him alongside Jordan Henderson and Fabinho in midfield, and giving the team something they didn't have before.

"And it says a lot about where the club is right now that someone who is an important player at Bayern Munich wants to come and play for Liverpool."
