Thiago Alcantara admits he’s desperate to play at Anfield in front of a full stadium of Liverpool fans. The midfielder joined the Reds last summer from Bayern Munich.

 

He told AS: “It is a change of country, club, stadium and you have the expectation not only of seeing the public in your stadium, which will be beautiful to see Anfield full, but also the experience of learning about this new country every day.

 

“For football fans like us, football loses much of its essence without people in the stands. We are competing in empty stadiums and we have had to relearn because since we were little we have played on fields not without people, with screaming parents. We knew how to do it and we were used to playing with people supporting us and even with people against us.

 

“Now we have gotten used to playing without the public, but we miss so much that there are people in the stadiums that there is a little yearning every day.”

 

Thiago also said, “The extra of the public is missing in the final moments of the game, which gives you that little physical point. It is something psychological. As in the day to day being able to do little in the city with the family, and more in a new city. You go from home to training and from training to home and you enter a dynamic in which it is just that.

 

“Soccer is much more, you have to live day by day, the approach with the fans. I have my son who is a football fan at four years old and not being able to take him to the stadium is frustrating for me and for him. When you open everything, it will be much better for everyone.
