Liverpool midfielder, Thiago Alcantara has come out to say that he played through pain in almost all of his debut season in England. He recently revealed that he had several hamstring complaints that held him back on the pitch.
According to him, he also had lots of pain between the glutes, and he was never completely injury free to play throughout last season.
He added that he hopes a good preseason and proper care from the medical staff will make him up his game this term.
His words, “The last season I started with – from a long time before that – some pain up there in the hamstring, between the glutes, old pain.”
“I was never clean to play because I was always with that pain and there’s a point during the end of the last season that I started to feel [it] more and more. And with the national team, I couldn’t even sprint in some terms, I couldn’t do some actions.”
“So I try to start the pre-season, always in agreement with the medical team, to [do] individual work to clean the area a bit more and to be without more pain.”
“So we are at that point now that we try to take it out and, at the same point, to stay with the team.”
“I’m never pleased with my performance, I always want more and more and more and more.”
“The minimum we have to give is how we ended with these wins, with these extraordinary moments. But at the end, it was just about pushing because of the situation that we had.”
“We weren’t happy enough, so we were pushing to be as happy as we could. But now we start from zero and we want everything, we want to win everything again.”
