Victory rate booster as Klopp is happy to have Thiago back

Jurgen Klopp discussed Thiago Alcantara’s comeback and Liverpool’s Premier League draw on Wednesday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp revelled in the long-awaited return of star midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

Thiago came off the bench in his first appearance since October as Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by Newcastle United in the Premier League on Wednesday.

The former Bayern Munich man, who sustained a knee injury in a 2-2 draw with Everton on October 17, was a 73rd-minute substitute and managed to make 23 passes with 91.3 per cent accuracy midweek.

“We signed Thiago actually because we thought he was a good player, so you can imagine we would like to have him in the team. That’s clear,” Klopp told reporters during his post-match news conference.
