Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Egyp star Mohammed Salah is a world class player even though he is not having the best period in his career especially this season.
Mohamed Salah has had a slow start to the season having scored just three goals in nine games across all competitions.
Many see this as a disappointing start to the season especially following his unforgettable 2017/2018 season where he scored 44 goals in all competitions.
However Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that the Egypt international is just having a bad period and is a world class player.
“It was tactical, he was not injured, It was not Mo’s best game of his career, 100%,” Klopp said during the post-match interview.
“But coming in a game like this, constantly in situations like he comes in, that makes a world class player. You fail, you miss, whatever, that happens. No problem with that.
“But I want him so that he wants to be decisive, to score in these situations. You could see the first ball he missed a bit it was not in the right position, and the next ball he passed! Why? He could have shot.
“You need to work for these moments when it’s clicking. That’s the period he’s in, no problem with that,” he added.
Liverpool are having a sensational start in the Premier League having won six and drawn one of their seven opening games, making them second on the league table with 19 points just behind Manchester City in goal difference.
The Reds will face Napoli in their next game in the UEFA Champions League group stage on October 3.
