Jurgen Klopp not worried by Mohamed Salah’s slow start to season

Jurgen Klopp not worried by Mohamed Salah’s slow start to season

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp insists there is no need for “big talks” with forward Mohamed Salah over his frustrations in front of goal this season.

The Egypt international has scored three times in nine matches this season, but has just one in the last six, compared to six in his first nine games this time last year.

Salah enjoyed a golden season in 2017/18, scoring 44 goals in all competitions and securing a new Premier League record of 32 goals in a 38-game season but has looked out of sorts at the beginning of the current campaign.

But Klopp, speaking ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League game with Napoli, said: “The only thing that is obvious, and I only have to say that to Mo, is that it was absolutely clear that we would stand in a situation like this here and talk about it.

“Even Harry Kane. They talk about this and now he scored last week two goals, but before that, he was, ‘Not even half he was last year’, that is what people were saying, stuff like that.

“For us, it is completely cool. If the player is not happy with it – that is clear. If you have a chance, you want to score.

“It is completely normal, all good. As long as we perform like we have, everything will be fine.

“With Mo [in the 1-1 Premier League draw with Chelsea] first shot too close, second shot too far, so position-wise with the feet it is easy to explain.

“In these situations going through them there is no advice, you cannot give it, because the experience, they make themselves.

“They know, ‘I didn’t score, I didn’t score so next time I pass’, but it is about judging the situation again, ‘Can I shoot? Yes. Score’.

“So there are not big talks necessary, just a completely normal situation it is absolutely easy to expect, because if you don’t score in your first seven games 10 goals, then everybody asks if you can do it again.

“Even Ian Rush didn’t score 40 goals in 10 seasons, season after season after season. That’s not how it works.

“You have to be a proper threat. As an offensive player you have to work hard. At the end of season it depends how much success we have as a team if it is successful or not.

“There is no personal success possible. All awards are for everyone. We do what we do best.”
