Monaco midfielder Cesc warns Liverpool playmaker Thiago: Time to prove yourself

Monaco midfielder Cesc Fabregas has told Liverpool playmaker Thiago Alcantara it's time to prove himself.

Cesc says his former Spain and Barcelona teammate needs to show the world what he can do for Spain in the Euros.

“Thiago, without any doubt, he has got fantastic qualities. He started very young at Barcelona, I played with him for a year," the Monaco star told the BBC.

“I think it's time for Thiago to basically do something big in a big tournament. He has been now at the Euros, he has been at the World Cup, he never really played too much.

“So I think he needs to find a consistency to show the whole world that he really has top top level to show it at the biggest stage."

Spain must beat Slovakia on Wednesday to reach the knockout phase of the Euros.
