Thiago Alcantara makes massive Liverpool FA Cup final admission

Thiago Alcantara, a Liverpool midfielder who missed out on a blockbuster Wembley final earlier this year after being hurt in the warm-up, is eager to make amends.

Thiago, who struggled in his first season at Anfield, has emerged as a key player for Jurgen Klopp this season.

Fabinho is dealing with similar anguish after learning that a hamstring injury will keep him out of the FA Cup final this weekend, the sport’s oldest. It’s a disaster. Shattering.

Despite his international experience, he insists that he understands what Wembley means, which explains his emotions at the famed stadium.

He was selected to face Chelsea in the EFL Cup final after a debut year marred by injury concerns and the disappointment of a season in which Jurgen Klopp’s team struggled to finish in the top four.

Despite this, he injured his hamstring in the warm-up and broke down sobbing into his hands as he sat dejected on the bench shortly before kickoff.

Given the vivid history of the FA Cup, he now concedes that the chance to play in the final on Saturday is a form of redemption in the best conceivable way.

“We came from other nations – not only me, but other players as well – and just met this incredible competition, the world’s oldest,” he continued.

“We are really excited to play – not just the competition itself but a final. We’re ready for it. Wembley is an amazing stadium.

“It’s special itself but then you know that Wembley is used for special moments. There’s a different context and we’re ready to go to London.”
