Thiago’s wife sends Coutinho message saying he’s "needed" and "missed"

Thiago Alcantara's wife Julia Vigas has sent a message to Philippe Coutinho and his wife Aine saying the couple "miss and need" them.

Thiago struck up a good friendship with Coutinho last season, when the Barcelona star was on loan at Bayern Munich.

Together the pair won the Bundesliga and Champions League before Coutinho returned to his parent club and Thiago signed for the Brazilian's former side, Liverpool.

The pair still keep in touch, and it seems their wives are also friendly too.

During an Instagram Live Q&A, Thiago's wife Julia was asked whether it's true the couple miss Coutinho and Aine.

Before Thiago left Bavaria for Merseyside he spoke to Coutinho and Xabi Alonso about what it's like in Liverpool and what it means to play for the club.

Thiago said: "More than the football aspect because in the end, Liverpool is what it is for the last years, the last decades.

"[Liverpool] were amazing, they performed and it is raising every year as much as you can, as much as they can, as much as we can, is what I should say.

"More than that, it is the family aspect, the life aspect – how is the city? Where to go.

"How was the life [here]? People like Philippe Coutinho and Xabi Alonso helped me a lot to take this last step. It's really good."
