I was onboard and all in with Jurgen from day one – from the start he made everyone believe they were about to go on a special journey.So I was immensely proud when I saw him deliver the title – and there was relief, from waiting so long as a fan and as a player.

There has been no firm offer from anyone.“I think Bayern are bracing themselves for Liverpool, because that’s the club he has been linked with and that’s the rumour in the dressing room, that he’s been talking about Liverpool.“But we haven’t seen any offer from Liverpool coming in.“Liverpool themselves have, of course, distanced themselves repeatedly from making a move for Thiago.“Again, that could just be, at this moment in time, part of their strategy.“But I think Bayern are now more or less resigned to him leaving, which I think is a big blow for them.”Thiago Alcantara of Bayern Munich (Image: M.
