Official: Thiago Alcantara quits Nike and joins Adidas

Liverpool star Thiago Alcantara finally made the long-awaited switch to Adidas from rivals Nike.

The Spaniard joins a long list of football players endorsed by the Germany-based sportswear giants which include the likes of Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba and Mesut Ozil along with his own Liverpool teammates in Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.

The former Barcelona star has been rumoured to make the switch for a while now after he was spotted wearing blacked-out Nike Venom cleats during the clash against Manchester United back in January.

Thiago, who is on international duty at the moment, posed for the camera while wearing the newly-unveiled Spain away kit from Adidas.

The midfielder joined the ranks at the Merseyside outfit in a £25 million transfer from Bayern Munich in the 2020 summer transfer window.

It has not been the best of times on the field for Thiago, who just like Liverpool, has seen his time at the club marred with injuries.

Though, with the new sponsorship deal now in place and the Reds going into the international break on the back of a couple of wins, Thiago would be hoping to kick on as Liverpool have all to play for in the Champions League along with a top-four fight in the Premier League.
