Liverpool fans turn on club chiefs FSG after Thiago transfer debacle

Liverpool fans are unhappy with club chiefs Fenway Sports Group (FSG) as problems amount over a move for Thiago Alcantara.

Jurgen Klopp is desperate to sign the midfielder and the feeling is mutual with the Spaniard keen on playing in the Premier League.

The 29-year-old told his club Bayern Munich he will not sign a new contract, with his current one set to expire next summer.

It has led the Bundesliga champions to listen to offers for the ex- Barcelona star.

And they have priced him at around £25m – a total that Liverpool do not want to go close to.

Instead, they are prepared to play the waiting game and try land Thiago on a free transfer next summer.

However, they are dicing with destiny with a number of other sides vying for his signature.

Manchester City could make a move as Pep Guardiola looks for a replacement for David Silva.

And the Catalan coach knows him well from his time in charge at both Bayern and Barca.

A number of fans tweeted the hashtag #FSGOUT as discontent over the American owners grows.

One supporter said: "Just pay the f****** money, FSG."

While another replied: "Won’t even spend 30m for one of the best midfielders itw."

Another moaned: "Just pay it, he’s world class."

A fourth quipped: "Thiago is no De Bruyne but he’s an amazing midfielder. Not paying 30m for him is just plain stupid."

And this fan said: "Just pay the fee fee ffs, Tf is wrong with fsg."

While this supporter angrily wrote: "What is the point of winning the league and champions league if u arent willing to pay 30M for a world class player that is currently at the peak of his career, if liverpool dont sign him they are a complete joke."
