Video: Thiago Alcantara exudes genuine passion after full-time whistle against West Brom

Thiago Alcantara went down on his knees and punched in the air in sheer jubilation and relief as the full-time whistle went off at the Hawthorns on Sunday.

The former Bayern Munich midfielder is now a fully functioning cog in the wheel of a Liverpool side who are fighting to secure Champions League qualification next season.

The Spaniard had a tough time accomodating to the culture at Liverpool but can now be seen running the game from midfield as evident from his performance in the 2-1 win against West Bromwich Albion.

Alisson grabbed all the headlines and perhaps rightly so considering he became the first goalkeeper ever to score a goal in a competitive match for Liverpool but Thiago’s display in the middle of the park was as important for the Reds’ cause.

Thiago was determined, dogged and skilful in his demeanour throughout the 90 minutes and released a passionate, authentic reaction as the game came to end, check it out below –
