Barnes: Why Liverpool Must Avoid Signing Amrabat

Liverpool legend John Barnes has advised the Reds not sign Moroccan Sofyan Amrabat due to his impressive 2022 World Cup performance.

The Reds are reportedly in talks to sign Amrabat but the player’s agent has revealed that the 26-year-old has a few offers on the table after massively impressing for Morocco in Qatar as they made a run to the semi-finals.

Barnes, though, has warned Liverpool about Amrabat as he told BonusCodeBets:I thought he had a great World Cup but what clubs shouldn’t do is look at the World Cup and say they’re going to sign players based on those performances,” Barnes told Bonuscodebets.co.uk.

“If they’ve been tracking him for the last six months to a year then great. Im sure Arabat is a good player but that’s not a move I’ve heard about for Liverpool.”

Amrabat played seven times for Morocco at Qatar 2022. He has appeared in 13 Serie A games this season so far

    There a racist undertone to this comment. If the world cup cannot be used as a basis to assess a players performance what else is a better inndicator?

      It’s not racist at all, especially coming from a player who suffered years of racist abuse himself. You can’t use just a World Cup because it’s only 6/7 games. You need to look at performance over at least an entire season. Liverpool have hopefully learned the lesson of signing Diouzier and Diao based on WC performances. The same applies to white English players and all players: don’t sign them based on a small number of games.
