Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara showed up for training on Wednesday with a completely different haricut to the previous day.
Having touched down in Dubai on Monday, Thiago headed out for a session the next day with his Liverpool teammates. Nothing untoward there, as far as we can tell, just the same old Thiago. Same old haircut.
Then, in a shock to just about everyone, the Spaniard showed up in Wednesday’s pictures virtually completely bald! By the looks of things, Thiago had shaved his head overnight.
Maybe the heat has got to him, just like it’s got to Andy Robertson. Perhaps we’ll see Robbo sporting a similar look in today’s batch of training photos. Please don’t do, Andy.
Thiago means business
The truth is, we wish we could rock bald like Thiago does. Is there anything the silky smooth Spaniard can’t do?
Well there is one thing, as it turns out. Despite all his obvious brilliance, the 31-year-old couldn’t make his country’s squad for this year’s World Cup.
As everyone predicted it might be, that was shown up for the mistake it was by Luis Enrique. Spain fell horribly shirt in Qatar, succumbing to a last-16 exit at the hands of Morocco.
Enrique has paid with his job, while Thiago will perhaps be given a second wind in his hopes of playing for his national team.
That could be good news for Liverpool, as their No.6 goes out to prove some points in the second half of the season. His importance to the Reds has once again been highlighted during the course of the campaign. so far
It may suit Liverpool to have him hang up his boots from playing for Spain soon. His fitness has always been a worry and the less time he spends away from the club the better, really.
But with his mentality, he’ll surely be keen to get a recall from new boss Luis de la Fuente. If that leads to even better performances at club level, then we won’t be complaining.
As we can see from his new hairstyle, Thiago means business in 2023. Stop him if you can.
