Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after finding out that Luis Enrique had left Thiago out of the Spain squad.

Now, he’s left the £200,000-a-week man out entirely for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Sweden, Georgia and Kosovo.

Nevertheless, it’s great news for Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp from a selfish point of view.

Thankfully, Enrique’s decision means Thiago can stay at the AXA Training Centre during the international break and work on his fitness.

Klopp has only given the Liverpool No.6 nine minutes of Premier League action this season, so the German clearly feels his midfielder needs a bit more time to get fit.

Let’s see what the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been saying about Thiago’s exclusion from the Spain squad…
