Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes believes that Thiago Alcantara would be better suited to the Red Devils than Liverpool.
The former Bayern Munich man has shown flashes of what he is capable of during his time at Anfield, but he is yet to live up to his high expectations since arriving at the club.
Thiago's ability to thrive in Jurgen Klopp's midfield three has been called into question, and Scholes thinks that a double-pivot system employed by United would suit him better.
Speaking to Premier League Productions, Scholes said: "The way Liverpool play with the three in midfield, I don't think he has great legs about him, so that central role would suit him down to the ground.
"Once you are in a wider position in the three, it's very difficult to get around the pitch because he's not that type of player. He's not someone who is going to be running out to a left-back. It's just not his game. He just needs to be sat in the middle.
"Controlling things, bringing players into play and that's what he's good at – I just wonder if this way of playing that Liverpool play is suited to his style of football.
"He doesn't seem a Jurgen Klopp-type player, does he? You think of the midfield players he has got and the forward players. Everything is 100 miles per hour.
"I thought he would have been more suited to a Manchester United team. In a two in midfield with a holding player, really good strong defensive player, where he can sit and control games.
"Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool, I don't see them controlling games. I see them going for the throat in teams. He hasn't got that energy to really overpower midfield players."
Thiago has started nine of the Reds' last 10 Premier League matches, but he is yet to register a goal or assist for his new club.
