Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara has stated that he will not touch the ‘This is Anfield’ sign until he has won a trophy with the club.

This is because he once heard former Red Fernando Torres say that the sign should only be touched by those who have won silverware with the club.

Thiago has revealed that he will respect what he heard from Torres.

When Reds boss Jurgen Klopp first walked into the club back in 2015, he reminded the players that they should not be touching the sign until they have won a trophy with the club.

It would be fair to assume that not being able to touch the sign would motivate the players to win a trophy for the club. That is why we love this rule.
