Liverpool news: Samuel Etoo takes for inspiring Mohamed Salah

I hope that Salah remembers the day we were together in Stamford Bridge locker room, and he had poor performance in the locker room. I asked him to be patient and told him ‘You are a good player and you will become a great player’.

Salah has turned into that big player and will write his own story through persistence and strong desire. The whole thing depends on Salah himself, he has unbelievable skills and is currently performing at top level that permits him compete for Ballon d’Or.

The image of a sculpture of the Liverpool star was shared around the world and earned some less than flattering comparisons

Belgium under-19s striker Ngonge, 18, has scored four goals in four games in the UEFA Champions Youth League and has caught the eye of scouts.

Ngonge is seen as one of Belgium’s brightest young talents and the two Premier League giants have been watching his progress.

“I hope that Salah remembers the day we were together in Stamford Bridge dressing room after hed had a poor performance,” he told Qatars Al Kass Sports Channel.

He has shone in the games and top clubs are looking to see if they could get him before he breaks through further.

But the experienced Eto’o says he gave Salah a pep talk, telling him that his natural talent would shine if he was patient.

Atletico Madrid, Valencia, Lille and Inter Milan have also been represented at the UEFA Youth League games with Monaco, Borussia Dortmund and Atletico Madrid.

Arsenal and Liverpool are now interested but could face serious competition with Club Brugge also desperate to keep him.

A quiet performance in his last two games led former Arsenal defender Martin Keown to conclude that Salah is out of sorts.

Liverpool look like they need an individual to spring forward and take things by the scruff of the neck. This, in many ways, is the point when Klopp will hope Keita steps forward and begins to start living up to his exalted reputation.

In no way is it to be concluded that Keita is being viewed as a dud. His debut against West Ham United on the opening weekend was excellent and he followed up with a glorious moment – a backheel turn then a beautiful pass to Mohamed Salah – in the win at Crystal Palace eight days later.

LIVERPOOL star Mohamed Salah has Samuel Etoo to partly thanks for his stratospheric rise to fame last season.

He also made a significant contribution to helping Liverpool rescue a point at Chelsea at the end of September, when he came off the bench. Be in no doubt that he has the attributes to be a top-class performer, one who can thrive in England.

“I asked him to be patient and told him ‘You are a good player and you will become a great player.

Since then, though, Keita has been in the shadows. A back spasm in Napoli temporarily hospitalised him, a hamstring issue sustained while away with Guinea cost him another three weeks. For a player who thrives on high intensity demands, the disruption has been infuriating.

Eto’o was Salah’s team-mate at Chelsea at the time and things were not going well for the Egyptian.

What Klopp needs now, then, is for the snapshots to become something more meaningful and consistent. Liverpool’s manager had wanted Keita in his team practically from the time he was appointed three years ago. There is no shaking his conviction that Keita will be a success.

You can sense the desire amongst supporters to see him become a hero. The No 8 jersey he wears conjures memories of match-winning deeds and when he spoke in July, you could have imagined Steven Gerrard, the man who had the shirt before him, nodding in approval.

Former Barcelona striker Samuel Etoo believes the pep talk he gave Mohamed Salah has inspired a turnaround in the Liverpool wingers career.

The 26-year-old is regarded as one of the best players in the world thanks to successful spells with Roma and at Anfield, as well as his heroic displays for his country Egypt.

Salah is expected to be among the contenders to finish in the top three for the annual Ballon dOr prize, having netted 44 goals last season and led Liverpool to the Champions League final.

Etoo and Salah played together at Chelsea for six months in 2014 and the former Cameroon international is taking credit for helping steer the wingers career in the right direction.

I hope that Salah remembers the day we were together in Stamford Bridge dressing room after hed had a poor performance,” he told Qatars Al Kass Sports Channel.

I asked him to be patient and told him You are a good player and you will become a great player.

Salah has turned into that big player and will write his own story through persistence and strong desire.

The whole thing depends on Salah himself, he has unbelievable skills and is currently performing at a top level thats allowing him to compete for Ballon dOr.

Etoo, also formally of Liverpools Merseyside rivals Everton, is currently seeing out the twilight of his own career with Qatar Sports Club.

Thoughs Salah has significantly improved since his spell at Stamford Bridge, he is enduring a lean start to the 2018-19 campaign.

He has netted seven goals in 16 appearances in all competitions but has failed to hit the heights of last season, with a succession of missed chances leading former Arsenal defender Martin Keown to conclude that Salah is out of sorts.

“Maybe the injury he has is affecting him and he doesnt want to get hurt. Hes not really the same player.”
