The former Bayern star is a big fan of the super talented Spain international, but doubt if he would thrive in English football at Anfield.
Thiago Alcantara having been told that he may not fit the “Premier League and the Jurgen Klopp style of playing”, with Christian Ziege wanting the youngster to extend his contract with Bayern munich.
A move to Anfield for the Spain international is still in talk ahead of the next transfer window.
Bayern struggling to keep Thiago, despite his present contract is slated to expire in the summer of 2021.
“I have to say I love this player,” Ziege told CaughtOffside.
“He is a fantastic player but I’m not sure he fits into the Premier League and the Klopp style of playing.
“I think where he is, Bayern Munich, is a good place for him. Or maybe a Spanish team.
“I’m not 100% sure [about him joining Liverpool], although he is a fantastic player so he will handle it somehow.
“I’m just not 100% sure it’s right for him.”
