EPL: Thiago belongs in Master Football – Agbonlahor names player for Liverpool to sign


Former Aston Villa captain Gabriel Agbonlahor has told Liverpool they need to sign Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham to strengthen their midfield.

Agbonlahor also delivered a scathing judgment on Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara, insisting that the 31-year-old looks like he belongs in Masters Football – a competition for retired footballers.

The former England international told Football Insider: “100%. I watch Thiago against Brentford, looks like he belongs in Masters Football. He strolled around. Being good on the ball isn’t enough – you get run over in this competition. Henderson can still do it now and then, but he’s been bad the last few games.”

He added: “Fabinho can’t really run. Keita, Chamberlain, Elliott – they’re good players, but look at some of the other teams.

“They need [Jude] Bellingham. They need two top midfielders who can stretch the game and play box-to-box. Carragher is perfect – they now have to spend £200m on that midfield.
