Tiger Punch, September 24. Prior to this, Liverpool star Barnes was interviewed by the media, and he talked about Thiago in the interview. Barnes said that Thiago has done a good job in possession and passing, and the introduction of him can indeed help Liverpool solve some of the problems encountered before. Barnes also said that Fabinho performed well in the central defender position, but Fabinho will play a bigger role in the defensive midfield.
Barnes mentioned: "Tiago has performed very well in his Liverpool debut before. For Thiago, the previous match against Chelsea was the best time for him to complete his debut.
"When he was replaced, Liverpool had the upper hand, Chelsea had only ten players to challenge, and Thiago did a great job of possession and passing. "
"Tiago broke the record for the number of Premier League players' half-time passes against Chelsea, and I think this also illustrates very well what Thiago can bring to Liverpool."
"To be honest, I am looking forward to Thiago's performance against Manchester City, because Liverpool always had a disadvantage in possession rate when they played against Manchester City, and that was the problem Klopp had encountered in tactics."
"I think in today's football, there is no player better at controlling the ball than Thiago."
Fabinho topped the position of central defender against Chelsea. Barnes believed that Fabinho performed very well, but he was not a long-term solution for Liverpool in the central defender position. Barnes said: "Fabinho played very well in the game against Chelsea." "But if Liverpool let Fabinho play as a central defender for a long time, I think that is not feasible."
"If Liverpool can let Fabinho play central defender when needed, I think Fabinho will be happy about it, but I still think so. This is not Liverpool's long-term plan."
"When Fabinho is a defensive midfielder, he can have a greater positive impact on Liverpool. In this position, there is no better candidate than Fabinho. He also proved his own many times last season. strength."
"In my opinion, Fabinho is the core of Liverpool's midfield. He has played the biggest role. He is also the only true defensive midfielder in the Liverpool team."
