Wenger Reveals Problem Alcantaras Signing Creates For Liverpool

Legendary Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has explained the issue Jurgen Klopp has with bringing Thiago Alcantara into the Liverpool midfield.

Liverpool spent £25m to bring Alcantara to the club in September from Bayern Munich. However, it’s not gone so well for the Spaniard since moving to Anfield.

After first being sidelined by a problematic ankle problem, Alcantara’s return to the side in December coincided with a slump in Liverpool’s form.

Indeed, costly recent defeats to Burnley, Brighton, Manchester City and Leicester have seen Jurgen Klopp concede the title.

The 29-year-old former Barcelona star has displayed his wonderful range of passing in a Liverpool shirt. 

However, he has struggled to find decisive passes in the final third and does not have an assist to his name. There have been some theories thrown around suggesting Liverpool’s downturn is down to Thiago’s return to the side.

That has led to a fierce defence from Jamie Redknapp, who labelled the claims as ‘nonsense’.

However, after playing in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday night, Wenger has explained the ‘problem’ Thiago brings to their midfield.

Indeed, while appreciative of Thiago’s abilities, Wenger says the player has presented Klopp with an issue.

“Thiago, for me, shows the typical problem of a manager,” Wenger told beIN Sports.

“Liverpool were very hungry and aggressive in midfield. As a manager, you think, ‘now I want to make the team better and I’ll get a technical player’.

“When you get a technical player you lose the aggression in midfield. You destroy a little bit of the strength of Liverpool.

“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 something away from the team.”
