‘He gives the team something extra' - Bayern Munich boss Flick plays down Thiago exit talk amid Liverpool rumours

The coach is in no doubt about the quality of the midfielder and hopes he stays for the time being despite the lack of progress over contract talks

Hansi Flick hit out at the "so-called experts" who do not see the value in Thiago Alcantara as he reiterated his desire to keep the Bayern Munich midfielder.

Thiago's contract with Bayern runs out in 2021, and while the club have extended the deals of others such as Thomas Muller and Manuel Neuer, they have so far been unsuccessful in convincing the Spaniard to follow suit.

Given the form of Joshua Kimmich and Leon Goretzka at the base of the Bayern midfield since the season resumed last month, some fans may be wondering if Thiago's extension is necessary.
