Liverpool’s legend thinks that Thiago must earn his place

John Barnes thinks that Thiago isn’t a starter even if he is fit to play.


won the Champions League last season with

Bayern Munich

and then moved to


to show his abilities in a new team but he faced injuries and didn’t reach what he was expecting in

Premier League


And now Reds legend John Barnes has spoken his mind and said that although Klopp seems excited about club’s new signing he couldn’t use the player even if he wasn’t injured.


“When you are playing regularly that is when you can cement your position within the team, but, due to injuries, Thiago hasn’t been able to do that and played only a handful of games.” Barnes told BonusCodeBets


“He will be in contention to play, depending on the game. If Liverpool are facing opposition who defend in numbers and defend deep, then Thiago is the man who can create something from nothing. 


“He is not necessarily one of the first names in the midfield three even before he was injured. 


“It is the same with Diogo Jota, both players are giving Liverpool options and have the same quality as the other players but are not certainties to start each week. 


“Jota has scored so many goals since he joined, and he doesn’t start all the time. It is not a question of playing well it is all about the balance of the team, who compliments who.”
