Carragher makes yet another Salah claim

Jamie Carragher has taken his sweet time yet again to make an analysis of Liverpool goal threat Mo Salah.

Carragher told Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football: “I think he is under-appreciated and he can frustrate you as a player and I will show you clips why. It is also the reason why he is so good.

“When we think of Mo Salah receiving the ball, he is not a winger, he is a wide-forward, but he does play so narrow.

“I see Salah constantly marked when he receives the ball. He almost marks himself in some ways.

“He is not as strong as [Sadio] Mane, he is probably not as clever with the ball as [Roberto] Firmino when the ball comes into them, because they all play very narrow.

“So he does lose the ball a lot in situations like this. So when you’re watching a game, with free-play between the boxes, if you like, at times it can be a frustration watching Salah.”

“There is also no doubt that there is a selfish side to his game, we saw that come out with the reaction of [Sadio] Mane [as shown in the clip by Sky Sports] earlier in the season and there now,” added Carragher.

“When Mo Salah is in that position, all he is thinking about is that [shoot]. The first thing that he thinks of when he gets the ball is ‘can I score or set someone up?’ But his first thought is ‘score.’

‘At times that is a frustration, but I then go this is why it is a success of him.

“I played with wide players at Liverpool who never scored a goal. They would go through a season and score one goal because they were obsessed with getting chalk on their boots. Get wide and get side-on.”
