“For sure. He’s a winner,” Adrian said of Thiago Alcantara to Liverpoolfc.com. “You see his career, he won a lot of titles because obviously he was in a top team like Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
“He likes to win, he came here to win, to try to win all the titles we are facing this season. It’s going to be intense, it’s going to be a period with many games. It’s a great signing for us and I think he’s going to help us a lot.
“Thiago is a world-class player. I knew him before when we went to the national team and because we have a few friends between us. He’s a top player, he has quality, he has great pass, great shot, vision of the game – a different one. So he gives us a lot of help,” he added.
“This season is going to be tough and he gives us that quality that he has. Obviously part of this is a great player, fits really well into the dressing room, speaks very good English, so no problem at all. I think he’s going to enjoy this season, the first season with us.”
The former Bayern man had an impressive debut for the League champions. He came on for the Reds on the 45th minute mark in the second half completing 75 passes more than any opposing player in that game and more than any other player in 45 minutes in the history of the Premier League.
The 29-year-old also made one key pass, provided 10 accurate long balls and sealed his debut with a 2-0 win.
