Prem clubs on alert after Matthaus savages ‘shadow’ Thiago

Lothar Matthaus believes that Bayern Munich should consider offers for midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

Thiago has endured a difficult season despite Bayern’s success in the Bundesliga, starting just 12 league games.

His lack of opportunities has mainly been down to injuries, but Matthaus feels it is indicative of a player who has been “a shadow of himself”.

Matthaus even wants Bayern to listen to bids for the midfielder, who is wanted by Manchester City and has previously interested Manchester United.

“Thiago has not made the difference in the big games so far,” he told SportBild. “I actually like him, but he was a shadow of himself. Thiago has disappointed me in recent weeks.

“I do not know where he is with his head. With these issues, he is not a player for Bayern Munich

“If there is an appropriate offer, you can think about it. Especially since Bayern have Thomas Müller, James Rodríguez and Leon Goretzka for the same position. ”
