Liverpool midfielder Thiago has compared his Anfield career to a Formula 1 race, and insists it has been a great start / stop so far.
The Spanish national team player arrived from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2020, weeks after he had conquered Europe with Die Roten.
But his time in England has been damaged and he has only made 30 Premier League appearances for Liverpool so far.
When Thiago spoke to BT Sport ahead of their group stage match in the Champions League with Porto, Thiago revealed how frustrating it has been.
“At some points it was like Formula 1 – stop and go. In the end, you want a race with all the laps and I just wanted to play football here, learn as much as I can and help as much as I can,” he said.

Thiago also opened up his role as midfielder on Jurgen Klopp’s side and revealed what motivates him after having already achieved so much in his career.
“I try to learn what the manager wants for me on the team, and then from what I see on the pitch,” he added. “He changes some small details but you have to interpret them to win the match. But I’m a midfielder, because the coach wants me to get in the box and be physically as tall as I can.
“Each and everyone of us [at Liverpool] we are hungry in every match. First of all, we are fully motivated just because we play in the Champions League at Anfield against a fantastic team like Porto. But you also have to find out small motives to make your game even better than it is. The game itself is fantastic to play and it’s a dream at this stadium. “
