The Egyptian star, Mohamed Salah, has raised the concerns of Liverpool supporters in the recent period, after his level has declined significantly, which has caused a decline in the striking attacking force of Liverpool, who is in ninth place in the English Premier League with 29 points, 21 points behind leaders Arsenal, Which practically means losing the chance to win the league title this season.
And before facing Brighton tomorrow in a difficult match against Liverpool in the Federation Cup, which is the same team that previously tied with him in the league back-to-back, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp specified in a press statement reported by English media, including the “Daily Mail” newspaper, some of the reasons that explain Salah’s suffering in front of The net, and the noticeable decline in his level, and Klopp said that the main reason is the change of the offensive system, especially at the level of the elements, and stressed that the departure of Senegalese Sadio Mane, as well as the decline in the level of Brazilian Firmino and his many injuries, caused a major defect in the attacking trio that was previously led by Salah. And he contributed to the great successes of Liverpool.
He said that Liverpool’s terrifying attack was associated for a long time with that trio that brought Liverpool back to the podium in the English Premier League, and also brought it back to winning the Champions League title, and indicated that Mane’s absence greatly affected the level of Liverpool’s attack, and that this cannot be ignored.
So far this season, Salah has scored only 7 goals in 19 games, while last season he had scored 23 goals, and won the top scorer title jointly with Tottenham star Son.
He stressed that Salah did not get enough time to adapt to the new elements, and said that Jota was affected by injuries, as well as Diaz, then the arrival of Darwin Nunez, as well as the Dutchman Gakbo, who did not give Salah enough opportunity to get along with them.
He stressed that it takes patience and a long time for the new elements to be judged in the Liverpool attack, and their compatibility with the way Salah plays and the offensive form that the Reds fans are accustomed to. He pointed out that victory in a match may not necessarily mean that Liverpool will recover, saying that it may take a long time before Liverpool returns as strong as it was in the previous period, asking its fans to be patient.
