Mohamed Salah may be going through a rough patch but former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes it’s not a matter of concern.
On the back of his record breaking 44 goal season, Salah was expected to replicate his form this season but it hasn’t been a smooth sailing for the Egyptian international having found the net on just three occasions in the first nine games in all competitions.
There has been a perception growing amongst the Liverpool supporters suggesting Salah may be a one season wonder but it’s too early to draw a line. The former AS Roma player almost swept all the awards available on the UK Soil but is finding it difficult to regain his old touch back.
Carragher feels It’s only a matter of time before Salah finds his form back. “He’s not in great form, but I don’t really think he’s in bad form either.
“I think a little bit too much has probably been made of Salah’s form. He is only one goal down on last season.
“I hope Klopp is saying this to him about the goals he scored last season: if he doesn’t get over 40 goals, it doesn’t mean he’s had a bad season.
“Ian Rush was Liverpool’s greatest ever goalscorer and he only got 47 in one season. He never got 47 again, he would score 25 or 30 goals a season
“If Salah gets 25 goals a season then he’s had a great season.”
