More twists in the Thiago saga.

Another day another twist in the Thiago Alcantara to Manchester United story, this time involving the Spanish national team manager Vncente Del Bosque. The national manager has weighed into the Thiago situation with his own advice for the young playmaker advising him to stay with the Catalan giants. 

Del Bosque noted:

“The most important thing for Thiago is that he keeps on getting games.”

“I think he would get them at Barcelona, he is held in a very high regard at the club.”

It’a not entirely surprising that a national manager who relies so heavily on Barcelona players to make up much of his squad, is keen to placate the club and favours Thiago to stay with them, but it is a little odd that he’s being so vocal. Del Bosque must surely see that the reason Thiago isn’t in the Spanish first team yet is the same reason he isn’t in the Barcelona one either, the likes of Andres Iniesta, Xavi and Cesc Fabregas are in his way.

Ultimately it may not matter what Del Bosque thinks, but most Reds will be a little disturbed that the national boss who Thiago  is naturally keen to impress has weighed in on the side of Barcelona. Let’s just hope Thiago realises it’s a lot easier to oust Anderson and Tom Cleverley from a side than it is Xavi and Iniesta. The saga continues…..
