Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been injured again in his return for the first time in 10 months.
Britain’s Guardian reported on the 8th (Korean time) that “Thiago was injured again after playing in Liverpool for the first time in 10 months.” 꽁머니사이트
Thiago played as a substitute in the 40th minute of the second half in the previous match between Liverpool and Arsenal. He came on the ground for the first time in as many as 10 months. The last game before Thiago played in the match against Arsenal was against West Ham in April 2023.
Thiago ended the match against Arsenal without much performance. Then news broke immediately that Thiago was re-injured. The Guardian explained that Thiago faced another injury after a brief return to the match against Arsenal. ‘He felt a muscle problem while playing as a substitute.’
Thiago has consistently received 200,000 pounds (335 million won) a week for as long as 10 months. Thiago’s annual salary is similar to that of Tottenham’s Son Heung-min. For Liverpool fans, it is frustrating.
Thiago’s contract with Liverpool runs through this 2023-2024 season. Liverpool planned to sell Thiago last summer with Saudi Arabia’s attention, but negotiations failed to progress due to various issues, including injuries. In this situation, Thiago was injured again, making it more difficult for him to stay in Liverpool after this season.
The Guardian also predicted, “Tiago has just returned from a long-term hip injury and has already suffered hamstring, thigh and knee injuries since joining Liverpool. He is likely to leave Liverpool on a free contract this summer.”
Thiago, who made his professional debut with Barcelona in 2009, started his heyday by wearing the Bayern Munich uniform in 2013. Afterwards, he moved to Liverpool in 2020 and showed excellent performance. However, his Liverpool career, which was marred by injuries at the end of his contract, is likely to end unfortunately.
