A gesture from Thiago ahead of Liverpool’s recent Champions League game warmed hearts.
The Reds midfielder is adored for his magic in midfield and his cheerful character off the pitch, and his gesture ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League group stage clash against Napoli did not go unnoticed.
Liverpool faced Napoli on a cold and drizzly night at Anfield, and as the two sides lined up on the pitch ready for the famous Champions League anthem, the young mascots with them felt the effects of the chill. Weather report.
This prompted Thiago to take off his pre-match jacket and wrap it around one of the children in front of him to protect her from the cold.
It’s not the first time he’s done this either – earlier in the season he did the same before a Champions League game against Rangers.
The mascots around them really appreciated the gesture and it showed through their reaction, with some of them smiling in a clear show of joy at what the Spaniard had just done.
It’s that kind of empathy that has made Thiago such a beloved figure over the past two years on Merseyside since joining from Bayern Munich.
After the gesture, Thiago put in a masterful performance against the visitors Italy as Liverpool ran out 2-0 winners to conclude their group stage campaign.
