In a statement he made to sports network ESPN, Naor Malachi, the agent of Barcelona’s loaned-out striker Keirrison de Souza (21), said any move by the player to English Premier League side Liverpool is “highly unlikely” because he believes that the Brazilian player would get even fewer minutes at the Anfield club than at Benfica.
“Keirrison is having a difficult time at Benfica because (strikers) Cardozo and Saviola have been performing well. Even though he’s still young when he arrived at the club, he expected a lot more playing opportunities. I don’t think moving to Liverpool is going to change that because Liverpool is a very big club with very good strikers. The situation will just repeat itself.”
Malachi is also convinced that the player’s owner club will never agree to any such move: “Nor do I believe that Barcelona will agree to it. They want a club that can give Keirrison opportunities to play, and I have to say Liverpool is not that club.”
