Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski showed exactly what he thinks of Liverpool new boy Thiago Alcantara after the "magician" confirmed his exit from the Bavarian giants.

Thiago posted an emotional video on Friday in which he thanked everyone at the club for his time there, which included seven Bundesliga titles in seven years as well as the Champions League in Lisbon last month.

He will now link up with Jurgen Klopp's Premier League champions, and Lewandowski bade him a fond farewell on social media.

Responding to the midfielder's post on his exit, the Polish forward - widely regarded as the best No.9 in the world right now - wrote: "It was a pleasure to play with such a Magician like you. Gracias Amigo."
