Pep liganders show status of Thiago Alcantara and Liverpool with COVID-19

Liverpool confirmed that Thiago Alcantara tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday night.

The former Bayern Munich man, who arrived at Anfield earlier this month, recorded Liverpool’s 3–1 Premier League win over Arsenal on Monday.

The absence of a world-class midfielder led to speculation over his fitness, after which he was featured in training with Jurgen Klopp’s squad on Friday.

The assistant manager Papijn Lijders has now wished the Spain international to “get well soon”.

He said: “Health and family are the most important things in life after football.

“We wish him a speedy recovery, but I wish everyone who is recovering from this virus fast and hope that everything will be well.”

“We decided from the beginning of the epidemic that we would not make any comments about individuals or their status, so we would put it like a club.”

The Legenders also praised the structure in which one must be infected immediately to prevent Liverpool’s inclusion of the virus and spreading to other players and staff at the club.

“It is a great appreciation for our structure that we have been tested by the Premier League and we do private tests as well,” he said when asked if he believed no one else had contracted the virus and that was the rest. The Reds squad did not spread in parts.

“The most important thing is keeping discipline and when something happens we test immediately. It’s all right.”

Liverpool have clearly followed the required protocol and Thiago has already begun a 10-day period of self-isolation.

The club said the 29-year-old “exhibits minor symptoms of the virus” but “is in good health and is getting better”.

Thiago will not be available for Liverpool’s next two fixtures – the Carabao Cup fourth round tie against Arsenal at Anfield on Thursday (1 October) and the Premier League match at Aston Villa on Sunday (4 October).

Then comes the international break and it is hoped that he can return to visit Everton on Saturday 17 October.

After Monday’s Carabao Cup win, Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Thiago would miss the next two matches.

The Reds boss said, “After the international break, he will recover.” “Definitely and that’s the situation right now.”
