Jurgen Klopp Denies If Mo Wrongly Considered “Selfish”

Liverpool’s top score at the moment, Mohamed Salah is said to be selfish by many because the Reds attackers actually have fewer goals.

Liverpool tops the Premier League, 22 points ahead of second place, Manchester City and on its way to winning its first title in 30 years.

As a team that is said to be successful this season, especially in the domestic league, it is sure to get a lot of criticism which is basically to improve the team in any way and Liverpool are not immune to it. One of the things that has been the subject of criticism recently is Liverpool’s top scorer, Mohamed Salah recently faced criticism.

Before last week’s match against West Ham, Salah had scored two goals in six league games and had 22 shots.

In his record, Salah has scored one goal against West Ham in a 2-0 win and two goals against Southampton in a 4-0 win, from nine shots.

“A week ago people talked a lot about Salah,” Klopp said at his press conference. Klopp said: “One is never selfish, or more selfish than he should be. A striker in the right position, we have seen a goal from Salah where he scored between four players and found the top side of the goal.

“Then when you don’t score, people say, you should be here or there. He was very unselfish (against Southampton) and he got the ball back so he could score.”

In addition to praising the Egyptian player, Klopp also gave positive words to his partner as an attacker, Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian made a hat-trick of assists for his team-mates against Southampton and is an important part of the team, although he hasn’t scored at Anfield this season.

Player number 9 plays a very special role for the Reds and Klopp describes how the symbiotic relationship between the attackers allows the team to develop, rather than being hampered by one player who does not score enough and shoots too many with fruitless results.

Klopp added: “Bobby is amazing, a person who is very good at football, I don’t know a player like him, that’s right. Even a player like Bobby needs a goal where he can pass the ball, because he can’t take the ball and turn and run on his own “How he uses his friends’ skills is something special.”

Klopp further talked about the nature of his team and demanded that he continue to fight to the maximum, even though you could say the title of champion was already in the hands.

Klopp emphasized to his team: “Make it seem as if we lost and we will be degraded. That is the only way for us to win the match.”
