James Milner makes prediction about Mo Salah at Liverpool FC next season
James Milner says Mo Salah is more than capable of repeating his brilliant form for Liverpool FC next season
James Milner believes that Mohamed Salah is more than capable of repeating his brilliant form for Liverpool FC next season.
The 26-year-old Egypt international was one of European football’s top performing players last season as he helped the Reds to finish in fourth place in the Premier League table.
Salah also played an instrumental role in helping Liverpool FC to reach the Champions League final before they suffered a disappointing 3-1 defeat by Real Madrid.
The attacker netted 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool FC in his first campaign at the club after having signed from AS Roma last summer.
It now remains to be seen whether Salah will be able to hit the same heights next season.
However, Liverpool FC midfielder Milner seems to feel confident that Salah will be able to replicate his form next term as he bids to try and help the Reds to challenge for the title next term.
Speaking in an interview with Sky Sports, Milner said: “The best players in the world aren’t known because they just did it in one season, they do it over and over again.
“He is more than capable of doing that. There is pressure when you have had one good year to deliver again but he is a top player. He’s shown that. He’s going to keep on improving.
“We need to keep improving as a side with him as well, and make sure that all the pressure is not on his shoulders to deliver goals and get us out of tough situations.
“It’s down to all of us to help him be the best player he can and do that as part of a team.”
Liverpool FC are yet to win their first trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in October 2015.
The Merseyside outfit have signed Naby Keita, Fabinho, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker so far this summer in the transfer window.
