‘Thiago is a friend. He is a fantastic player, a fantastic midfielder. I had the luck in my career to train top, top players and Thiago is one of them.
‘The only good thing about this signing is that he is a neighbour and that’s it. I think he chose the wrong team.
‘He could choose the blue team, not the red team. I am joking. He is a fantastic player and my friend, Jurgen, will be happy.’
Liverpool have made an emphatic statement of their intent to retain the Premier League title by spending £65million to land Thiago and Diogo Jota.

Jurgen Klopp is thrilled to have signed one of the world’s best midfielders and could hand him a debut at Chelsea on Sunday.
The double signings show Liverpool mean business and Klopp is in no doubt that Thiago, in particular, will make a significant difference.
Officials at Bayern are distraught to have lost the 29-year-old Spain midfielder and the Liverpool manager could understand why.
