Jurgen Klopp raves about ‘extraordinary’ Liverpool FC star
Jurgen Klopp discusses Mohamed Salah's brilliant form for Liverpool FC this season
Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on Mohamed Salah after he continued his brilliant form by once again finding the net in Liverpool FC’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.
The Egypt international has been one of European football’s top performing players this season and he has earned huge amounts of praise for his strong displays for the Reds.
Salah netted Liverpool FC’s second goal against the Cherries on Saturday when he headed home Trent Alexander-Arnold’s superb long-range pass.
The strike made the 25-year-old the first Liverpool FC player to score 40 goals in one season in 31 years.
And Klopp was clearly delighted to see Salah continue his excellent form for the Merseyside outfit on Saturday.
Speaking at his post-match news conference at Anfield, Klopp said: “Thirty-one years ago since Ian Rush scored over 40 goals? Ian doesn’t look that old! Was he 14 when he scored them!?
“Yes, it’s extraordinary. He knows that the kind of [football] we play suits him.
“You saw the boys looking for him, searching for him a little bit too much. It was like ‘give him the ball’, so we had to mix it up. He is the threat, but it’s all good – that’s for analysis. You show it and the boys listen, they see that but in the game it is difficult to change.
“It is a win-win situation – the boys for him and him for the boys. It’s fantastic. He didn’t look like he doesn’t want to score for the next few games! It’s all good.”
Liverpool FC are currently in third place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish in the top four and secure a place in the Champions League for next season.
The Reds are next in Premier League action when they travel to West Brom next weekend as they bid to try and continue their fine form in all competitions.
Liverpool FC will take on AS Roma in the Champions League semi-finals later this month.
