Thiago Alcantara Suffers Fresh Injury Blow During Arsenal Liverpool Match

Thiago Alcantara

The Spanish midfielder made his season debut by coming on in the 85th minute during the 3-1 defeat at the Emirates.

Thiago’s season with the Reds has been marred by a hip issue, causing frustration for Jurgen Klopp.

The 32-year-old’s rehabilitation has been gradual, receiving careful attention.

However, his return was short-lived as a muscle injury occurred during Sunday’s match, leading to another period on the sidelines, as reported by The Times.

 

 

Thiago is out of contract at the end of the season and it appears unlikely Liverpool will offer him a new deal as injuries have plagued his time at Anfield.

Thiago’s previous Liverpool appearance was in their 2-1 Premier League win at West Ham last year.

He joins Dominik Szoboszlai and forward Mohamed Salah in the Liverpool treatment room as Jurgen Klopp tries to navigate his way to potentially four trophies in his final season in charge.

The midfielder, who arrived at Liverpool from Bayern Munich in 2020 for approximately £15m, has faced numerous injury setbacks during his tenure at the club.

Liverpool will welcome Burnley to Anfield on Saturday for a crucial Premier League encounter.
