Romano has good news for Liverpool fans about ‘magnificent player’
What player Liverpool have in the form of Thiago.
The Spain international reminded Liverpool fans of his quality during Arsenal’s 4-0 demolition last weekend.
He was not part of the goals, but Thiago was at the heart of everything Jurgen Klopp’s side created in an offensive sense.
The 30-year-old needed such a performance after what has been a stoppage-start in the first 15 months at Anfield.
Last week, Bild speculated that Barcelona might try to re-sign their old academy gem in January.
But reliable Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has poured cold water on the rumor, claiming he is focused on the Reds.
He told his Here We Go podcast, “I’m told it’s 100% true. [that he is focused on Liverpool]. Barcelona have never contacted Liverpool about Thiago. Of course, they consider him a magnificent player, but there is no negotiation with Thiago or Liverpool.
In short, absolutely.
Klopp is not flush with quality midfielders – well, not in good shape anyway.
Liverpool sidelined Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott and James Milner, while Jordan Henderson also missed the win over Arsenal with injury.
And as the Merseysiders have failed to replace Georginio Wijnaldum, it’s more important than ever that Klopp retains his best midfielders at the club.
And as he proved on Saturday, Thiago is certainly one of Liverpool’s strongest players for this role.
Put simply, the man is an absolute maestro and despite being 30 years old and a bit prone to insignificant injuries, he’s still a huge player for the Anfield squad and it’s definitely a boost if he stay put.
