Jurgen Klopp has insisted Mohamed Salah will find his footing soon enough and finish the season strong as the Merseyside club aim to claim glory in domestic and European competitions. The Egyptian winger hasn’t scored for the English club since February 19.
Mohamed Salah signed for Liverpool from Roma in the summer of 2017 and the Egyptian has since become one of the best strikers in world football with his prolific displays in domestic and European competitions. That includes this season as the 29-year-old has been in sensational form for the Reds this campaign as he has scored 28 goals and provided 11 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions.
Liverpool are on course to win a treble this season as they are in the FA Cup and Champions League semi-finals despite having already won the Carabao Cup this season. They are also engaged in a heated Premier League title race with Manchester City. Salah has won the Premier League Golden Boot twice and is the favorite to win the individual award again this season, although the Egyptian has failed to find the net in open play since February.
Many fans and critics are worried about the striker’s lack of form in front of goal, but the Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp played down suggestions of worry about Salah and backed him to get back to his best form.
“Yeah Yeah. It’s just in our business that the problem we have is that in January he had the most intense period of his entire career. The [Afcon] tournament went to the wire. They [Egypt] played in the final, they’ve had all those 120 minutes, the role he’s got is super, super massive. He has a huge responsibility on his shoulders with dressing room meetings and stuff like that without any recovery,” Klopp said in his press conference.
“But the boys here are focused every day. I know Mo will finish strong. It’s just for now that we have to reset because every game for us is a final,” he added.
