Liverpool and Man Utd transfer target Thiago Alcantara gives cryptic hint over his future | Football | Sport
Former Reds player Jamie Redknapp believes Thiago would be a great signing for Liverpool and tipped the Spaniard to make a name for himself at Anfield.
He told Sky Sports: “We’ve often spoken about how good Liverpool’s midfield are, how hard-working they are, but sometimes they maybe lack that bit of finesse and that little bit of quality.
“Thiago would give them something completely different, he’s one of the best midfield players in the world. He dictates the play, plays at his own pace.
“Sometimes, especially when you go to tough places in the Premier League, you cannot beat teams by going 100 mph all the time, you need a little bit of finesse and for someone to do things differently.
“Many years ago Liverpool had midfield players like Ronnie Whelan and Jan Molby who could just slow the game down and play at a tempo that suited them, Thiago could do that.
“We saw him in the Champions League final where he completely bossed the game, had so many touches of the ball and made the game look easy.”
