Liverpool defender Trent Alexander Arnold has admitted team-mate Mohamed Salah is a victim of his own success and insists the Egyptian has proven himself countless times for the Merseyside club. Salah has failed to find the net in his last eight club and national appearances.
Mohamed Salah signed for Liverpool from Roma in the summer of 2017 and has since become one of the best strikers in world football with his sensational performances in domestic and European competitions. The 29-year-old has taken his performance up a notch this season as he has scored 28 goals and registered 11 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions. The Liverpool star has only found the target once in his last 12 appearances as he looks to turn around his form to finish the season strong.
The 29-year-old is still the Reds’ top scorer in the current campaign, despite failing to score for club and country in their last eight games. The Egyptian has been criticized for his lifeless performances in recent weeks although Alexander Arnold believes Salah is a victim of his own success.
“I think it’s unfair. The levels he gets himself too, he’s sort of a victim of his own success. He’s still the top scorer, he’s behind me in terms of assists and people say he’s in bad form? ! He is also almost the top scorer in the Champions League,” the Liverpool defender told reporters at a press conference.
“What he’s done for us over the last five seasons has been exceptional. Look, it’s unfair that people say he’s going through a bad patch. We all believe he’s going to score goals for us. It’s only a matter of time before he puts it back in the net,” he added.
