Thiago Alcântara has announced his retirement from football.

The former Liverpool, Barcelona and Bayern Munich midfielder announced his decision after 15 years playing at an elite level.

Thiago won a combined 22 major honours, including two Champions Leagues, and made 46 appearances for Spain between 2011 and 2021.

But the 33-year-old’s final years were beset by injury, restricting him to just a solitary appearance for the Anfield club last season.
