Klopp: Why I Won't Praise Thiago Too Much

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained why he doesn't want to praise midfielder Thiago Alcantara too much after his display against Manchester United.

The Spanish midfielder received plenty of plaudits after performance in the 4-0 thrashing of the Red Devils on Tuesday evening.

Klopp did not want to praise the 31-year-old as he does not want to curse the midfielder, after his history praising players who then pick up injuries.

“It is great but I don’t want to talk too much about one player, not because he doesn’t deserve it but because when I do something happens to the player so I leave this room and Thiago feels something!," Klopp said, as per Goal.

“People were questioning if he suits our football? Thank god these people don’t make decisions!

“If a player is calming a game down in moments due to a lot of reasons it is nothing we thought, it is more important Thiago wanted to join us and knew how we played.

“He is a real football person and thinks a lot about football. He knew how we played and how we would fit in.

“It is about getting fit and staying fit and getting used to the slight differences to the other club. Thiago had only one problem, he was injured and that didn’t help. We only signed him because we knew he would suit us.”
