‘Cash In Now, For The Love Of God’ ‘I’d Still Keep Him Tbh!!!’ Fans Discuss Liverpool Star’s Future After New Injury Setback

Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara will miss the rest of the season after undergoing an operation on a longstanding hip injury.

The Spaniard has made 28 appearances in all competitions this campaign but, during his three years with the Reds, he has missed 60 matches due to fitness problems.

With one year remaining on Thiago’s contract, fans on Twitter have been debating whether the club should simply offload him now or allow him to move on a free at the end of next campaign:

It’s fair to say that, while Thiago has had his moments in a Liverpool shirt, his move to Anfield hasn’t worked out as many would have hoped.

Injuries are not the only reason that the 32-year-old has struggled. While he is outstanding in possession, he lacks the physicality and pace without the ball to really make the required impact when pressing his opponent. Many supporters saw Thiago as the final piece of the jigsaw. However, he has actually ended up being anything but an essential part of the team.
