Ever since being appointed as Spain’s head coach, Luis Enrique has raised many eyebrows with his team selections.
Instead of calling up seemingly obvious choices such as Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique among others, the former Barcelona has opted to dip into La Liga’s hidden treasures.
The trend dates back to his squad for the Euros and is even reflected by his latest picks, which include some notable omissions.
The midfielder recently picked up a hamstring injury that put him on the sidelines for a while, although he managed to return in time for the Reds’ Champions League encounter against Ajax.
Determined to show off what his team had been missing, Thiago delivered a midfielder masterclass, packed with flair and finesse.
Many assumed that performance of that nature warranted a sincere consideration from the national team, which unfortunately ended up being untrue.
Nevertheless, his omission will likely work out well for Liverpool, as it gives the 31-year-old a few days off, and a chance to rest and recover.
Instead of relaxing in his Merseyside home, or travelling back to Spain, Thiago has picked a different spot for a quick vacation, albeit a familiar one.
The former Bayern man opted to travel back to his old home of Munich, and join in on the Oktoberfest festivities.
A pivotal part of Bavarian Culture, the globally renowned festival piques the interest of millions of tourists, with the primary attraction being the hoards of beer.
The midfielder lived in Bavaria for about 7 years, and naturally, maintains an affinity for the culture.
He showed off his love for Munich by posting an image on his socials.
Posing alongside his wife, the pair wore traditional outfits to match the occasion, with Thiago wearing ‘Lederhosen’. Alongside the image was the caption ‘Always a Bavarian, München Oktoberfest’
Bayern fans soon flooded the reply section and reminded the player of their adoration for him.
