Jurgen Klopp doesn’t want to rush things with Mohamed Salah and is not losing his confidence in the player.
Following his stupendous last season, Salah was expected to thrive this season too but the 26 year old has had a rather sluggish start to the season. Three goals in seven matches don’t reflect his old form and he has struggled to hit the ground running from the start.
Salah hasn’t looked confident in some matches and also hasn’t been able to replicate his combination with his partners in crime Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. It might be too early to judge him but the forward needs to start firing before it gets too late.
Klopp backs his star player, “It was not Mo’s best game of his career, 100 per cent.
“In a game like this constantly in situations he comes in, that makes you a world-class player. You fail, you miss, whatever, that happens.
“He wants to be decisive, he wants to score in these situations. The first ball he missed it was not the right position. The next one he passed. Why? He could’ve finished again.
“It’s like riding a bike. It’s not like you wake up in the morning and you cannot finish any more or cannot ride a bike any more.
“That’s how it is, you only need to work for these moments when it’s clicking. That’s the period he is in, no problem with that, so all good.”
