Wenger reveals Klopp’s problem with Thiago at Liverpool

Former Arsenal head coach, Arsene Wenger, has revealed the “problem” Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has with midfielder, Thiago, at Anfield.

Liverpool signed Thiago from Bayern Munich last summer for £20million.

Thiago, who is one of the best midfielders in Europe, was expected to shine at Anfield but the 29-year-old has endured an underwhelming first season in the English Premier League so far.

Wenger believes Liverpool are not aggressive in the midfield like before after Klopp added Thiago, a technical player in his squad.

“Thiago, for me, shows the typical problem of a manager,” Wenger told beIN Sports on Tuesday night as Liverpool defeated RB Leipzig 2-0 in the Champions League round of 16 first-leg tie in Hungary.

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

“When you get a technical player, you lose the aggression in midfield and 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.”
