Young Liverpool talent Oakley Cannonier has been speaking recently about what it is like when he gets the chance to train with the first team and it appears Thiago Alcantara has made quite the impression on him.
Liverpool have got some fine young players coming through at the moment and when they get the chance to work with the first team they need to soak up every moment.
Indeed, it's an opportunity to work closely and learn from world class footballers and it appears that Thiago is one player that Cannonier cannot get enough of watching:
Oakley Cannonier on training with the first team:
“They’re so good. It's alright watching them on TV but then when you're with them in real life... just Thiago getting the ball and doing things I've not really seen before, I thought, 'Wow.'” #awlive [lfc] pic.twitter.com/BeaRz7I59a
Anfield Watch Verdict
You have to say that Thiago is probably one of the best footballers you could watch in the world, let alone at Liverpool.
He's got so much class and poise on the ball he makes the sport look like an art, and any youngster would learn from him.
Clearly, Cannonier is a big fan.
