Liverpool great Barnes: Thiago will thrive next season

Liverpool great John Barnes expects big things from Thiago Alcantara next season.

Barnes says Thiago will thrive next season when Liverpool are back to full strength.

He said, "You could argue that he has been one of the best players in the last few games, but that doesn't mean that the team is playing well, just that he is.

"Liverpool have been used to playing in a particular way, and while he has been very good, the nature of the type of player he is, has affected the way others play. Liverpool's style has not been used to this type of player in midfield.

"Once that situation is resolved, and the centre-backs are fit again, Liverpool are more solid defensively. Thiago will have more of an impact, as much as he has been playing well."
