Thiago Alcantara has reflected that leaving Barcelona to sign for Bayern Munich was ‘the best decision of my life’.
The Spanish youngster left the Catalans in the summer at a reduced price to reunite with Pep Guardiola and today has commented on his adaptation in Bavaria so far.
“It was the best decision of my live to come here to Munich. I am very happy here. Everybody knows the big history of the club,” mused Thiago, who has just recently returned from a long term ankle ligament injury sustained at the end of August.
“I am glad to be back. I am looking forward to the game. I am trying to improve still, but I am close to 100 per cent.
“What is my favourite position? I want to play – I do not care which position. The most important thing to me is to play in the starting XI.
“I know the Coach and the team is really strong – that is why I decided to come here. I have known Guardiola since I was 18 years old. I learned so much from him.
“And if we mix the powerful German style of play football with the Pep-style, perhaps this mixture makes us even stronger.”
