After helping Bayern win the Triple Crown, Thiago joined Liverpool with a transfer fee of 30 million euros. As the top executives of the former club, Rummenigge and Salihamidzic have all sent blessings to the Spanish midfielder.
Salihamidzic said: "Tiago is an outstanding player and a great person. I am sure he will keep in touch with Bayern. His child was born in Munich and he established a family here. It will not be forgotten. I hope he can stay healthy and achieve his goals."
Rummenigge said: "I still remember what Pep Guardiola said when he first came to Bayern:'Sign Thiago, or you won't win anything!' Looking back now, I am very happy that I met Gua's request. Thiago has grown from a 22-year-old genius to a leader player, and I really appreciate his personality."
"Now he wants to find new challenges in different leagues. We have fulfilled his request and agreed to go to Liverpool. On behalf of the entire Bayern club, I would like to send our best wishes to Thiago and his family. He is worthy I have everything I have and will always be a friend of our club."
