Jurgen Klopp spoke glowingly about Thiago after Liverpool played Bayern Munich in the Champions League last season.
"I've probably never seen them defend like that," he said.
"Respect to them as they made it difficult for us, although we had good situations where we missed the last touch.
"Thiago is a world-class footballer. He played that deep-lying playmaker role very well. Alongside (Javi) Martinez, they were very good."
Meanwhile, a Liverpool fan identified as Tony has sensationally pleaded with the Reds' manager Jurgen Klopp to sign Arsenal star Mesut Ozil whom he sees as a good addition to boost the club's midfield.
Klopp and his men are currently topping the Premier League table with 20 points and they are on the verge of winning the title for this season after waiting for 30 years.
So far this term in the English topflight, Liverpool have suffered only one defeat which was the same way they finished last season with only one loss.
Tony called the talkSPORT studio where he suggested that Mesut Ozil will be a great addition for his club if Jurgen Klopp should bring him in.
