Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick bid a "very emotional" goodbye to Liverpool-bound Thiago Alcantara

By Emmanuel Oladele - Bayern Munich playmaker Thiago Alcantara is expected to complete a move to Liverpool in coming days.

Team manager Hansi Flick has bid a "very emotional" goodbye to Liverpool bound Thiago.

"Thiago is an extraordinary player and was very important for us," Flick stated at a press conference ahead of Bundesliga opener against Schalke 04 which comes up on Friday.

My coaching team and I enjoyed working with him. It was very emotional as we said goodbye. I can only congratulate Liverpool as they got a great player and especially a great person.

Thiago gave the team a lot of options and made us unpredictable, he solved things in ways you don't expect. Now we're losing yet another great player." Flick concluded.

Liverpool have agreed a fee of £27m for the 29-year-old Spaniard who was instrumental to Bayern UEFA Champions League success last season.
