But Liverpool legend Barnes feels Thiago will be a key asset for his former side next season and suggested he may thrive when fans return to stadiums.
‘I can sympathise with Thiago this season and how it has gone for him,’ Barnes told BonusCodeBets.
‘Playing with no crowds can be tough for any player, especially one who has only been playing in England for less than a year.
‘He’s joined a team who were playing well, compact and the best team in the Premier League.
‘Then suddenly because of the injury situation, he’s now come into a team who are not playing well, as well as getting unfair criticism.
‘The way that he plays with the team we currently have, things just aren’t working at Anfield and I do really feel for him as he is a top player.
‘Thiago may feel that he needs the crowd for inspiration and to perform better.
‘When the crowds come back, we may start to see better results for Liverpool, but I’ve no doubt he’ll be one of the top performers next season.’
