Jurgen Klopp told Thiago Alcantara not the right ‘type of player’ for Liverpool | Football | Sport

“Thiago, who was running the game and was the best player in the first half [against United], I don’t think that necessarily helped the front three,” Barnes told talkSPORT.

“With [Jordan] Henderson and Fabinho in midfield, they just get the ball forward and are much more direct for the three strong-running strikers to get on the ball and go on attack, Thiago slows the game down.

“When he slowed the game down in tight areas, that is not Mane’s game, that is not Salah’s game.

“So we’re getting used to a new system, but at the moment it’s not working.”
