Liverpool legend Aldridge: If you like football, you have to enjoy watching Thiago

Liverpool legend John Aldridge is excited seeing Thiago Alcantara nearing full fitness.

Writing for the Sunday World, Aldridge said: "Thiago Alcantara was only on the field for 20 minutes in the 0-0 draw at Newcastle on Wednesday night, but we were given a wonderful reminder of what a class act he is.

"If you like football, you have to enjoy watching Thiago, as he is a Rolls-Royce of a footballer.

"His range of passing and intelligence is on a different level to everyone around him – and he can light the ignition switch in this Liverpool team in the coming months.

"Manager Jurgen Klopp has suggested Thiago will be the equivalent of a multi-million-pound signing in this month's transfer window and the snapshot of what we saw as he made his first appearance in over two months was so exciting."
