Liverpool midfielder Thiago: I asked about Klopp at Bayern Munich

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara admits moving to Anfield was due to manager Jurgen Klopp.

Liverpool completed the signing of the midfielder from Bayern Munich on a four-year deal for £20m in the summer.

And when discussing what prompted him to make the move to Merseyside back in September, the 29-year-old opened on his desire to work with Reds boss Klopp.

“When the option to come to Liverpool came up I had small chats with him [Klopp] and he gives you this good energy and this hunger, that I have, to win everything," he said.

“So I think it was a kind of match at this point and I asked team-mates 'how was your time in Dortmund?' and you start to talk about the team and then the coach.

“So then came my decision to join him and this time and so far he's been a great, great coach."
