Arsene Wenger on Thiago's recent drop in form

Big things were expected from the summer signing Thiago Alcantara.

The talented 29-year old midfielder joined the Reds in the summer of 2020 in a deal worth £25m.

Thiago won the Champions League and Bundesliga with Bayern Munich last season.

The Spaniard was sidelined with an ankle problem for quite a while and now has returned to the first-team.

He is struggling to find decisive passes in the final third and many pundits claim Liverpool’s downturn in form has to do with Thiago’s return to the side.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger provides insight on Thiago’s struggle at Anfield.

“Thiago Alcantara, for me, shows the typical problem of a manger,” Wenger told beIN SPORTS.

“For example Liverpool were very hungry and aggressive in midfield. When you’re manager you want to make the team better and you [sign] a technical player.

“But when you [sign] a technical player you lose the aggression in midfield and you destroy a bit of the strength Liverpool had before.

“They have certainly less capacity today to win the ball back and they suffer a little bit more, so sometimes when you want to improve the team, you take a little something away from the team.”
