Brentford may end up regretting their decision to spend big on Club Brugge striker Igor Thiago, as he’ll never be good enough for the Premier League.

That’s at least according to Thomas Radzinski, who is convinced the striker won’t be up to the mark once he arrives in England.

Brentford announced a surprise deal for Thiago earlier this year, agreeing to pay €37m to sign him in the summer transfer window.

The deal was a surprise to all involved, with the club having kept the transfer quiet throughout the January transfer window, most of which they spent trying to sign his teammate, Antonio Nusa.

Indeed, the fact it was kept out of the media was celebrated by his agents not long after it was announced, such was the secrecy of the deal.

While everyone was happy at the time things have taken a drastic turn for the worse since, with various reports in Belgium explaining how his form has fallen off of a cliff since the transfer was announced.

Now Radzinski has had his say on the matter, and warned Brentford they may come to quickly regret their decision to spend big and quickly on the player.

“Even in his good period I thought he was a clumsy striker,” he said.

“He’s big and strong, but he won’t score 15 goals every year. His rebounding is weak, as are his feet, and the connection with his fellow players is not there.

“He is also not a real target man: he often looks for depth for that. That you can sell someone with so many flaws for so much money: congratulations.

“A golden thing for Club Brugge! Igor Thiago would never make Club champions, not now and not next season. He has too many shortcomings for that. With the money Club received for him, they can buy two or three new strikers. Top deal!”
