” I actually feel sorry for Thiago”-Jamie Carragher

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher says he sympathises with Liverpool’s summer signing Thiago as he has been used in multiple positions since arriving at Anfield.

The 29-year-old became a world-renowned talent during his seven-year stint at Bayern Munich, in which he helped the German club win seven Bundesliga and Champions League titles in 2020.

But Thiago has yet to live up to expectations in Liverpool after making the £20 million move to Anfield in September.

The Covid-19 and Injuries he suffered have halted his progress, but Carragher suggested it is his change in position between a deep midfielder role and playing a bit further up that may have hampered him.

Speaking on The Robbie Fowler Podcast Carragher said ” I actually feel sorry for him a little bit because he’s played two or three different roles within the midfield.

“He’s played the deepest position, now he’s playing a little bit higher.

“I think he was very good against Leipzig and you think of that knock-on effect of having Fabinho next to him and what that will do to his game.

“Fabinho’s as good as anyone in Europe in that holding midfield role and I think we saw a glimpse of what Thiago can do going forward.’

“I don’t think we’re going to see a different Thiago next season when everyone’s fit and firing because I actually think he’s had some good games,’ Carragher added.

“He’s great with the ball but he’s not great without the ball and I don’t think that’s going to change, he gives silly fouls away, he’s not great when the game gets stretched.

“The problem he’s had is Liverpool’s games have become stretched this season because they’ve been losing.”
