Thiago Alcantara backed to put an end to Liverpool problems and emulate Bruno Fernandes | Football | Sport
Thiago, known for his eye for a pass and creative flair, is still slightly behind the pace, but Riise thinks he’ll be the man to unleash Liverpool’s attack.
Jurgen Klopp’s front three of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have been poor recently, with Firmino and Salah not having scored in the league since December 19th.
However, Riise thinks the return of Thiago will spark an immediate improvement in Liverpool’s form.
“Goals have dried up in the last few games but I think the return of Thiago Alacantara is going to put an end to that,” he said.
