Former Liverpool star, Dietmar Hamann, has rated midfielder Thiago Alcantara as one of Europe’s “most overrated players”.


Thiago was a key player for Liverpool as they ended the season with FA and Carabao Cup honours and finished runners-up in the Premier League and Champions League.


However, the 31-year-old’s performances have not satisfied Hamann, who feels he adds nothing to Jurgen Klopp’s side when they are under pressure.


“In my opinion, the Reds need to modernize the team a bit, especially in midfield,” Hamann wrote in a column for Sky Sport.


“I don’t understand the hype about Thiago. For me, he is one of the most overrated players in European football.


“When things are going well and you have a lot of possession, he’s a good player, but when push comes to shove you don’t see him.


“If you need someone who sets accents, then he doesn’t do it.


“[Naby] Keita is also a disappointment, [Jordan] Henderson is a worker. They need a player who can make the difference and give the team that extra something.”
