Salah must learn from Liverpool teammate, Jurgen Klopp insists

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has backed Mohamed Salah to rediscover his goalscoring form and believes team-mate Sadio Mane can provide inspiration.

The Egypt international scored 44 times in his first season at Anfield and although he has 20 in the current campaign, his goalless run of seven matches is the longest he has experienced since a 10-game streak for Roma in 2015-16.

Aldos point is that Salah needs to improve, which is true, but it seems a bit strong to suggest its more than a temporary blip. Its easy to forget that he missed chances last season, too, and had he not been so incredible last season, wed be viewing him very differently.

Mane is the teams in-form player, moving level on 20 goals with Salah, after scoring 11 goals in as many games in a longer run of 13 in 17.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has suggested Mohamed Salah could do worse than take advice from teammate Sadio Mane in a bid to overcome his apparent loss of form.

While hes got nowhere close to the 44 goals he netted last season, he has the same number as Sadio Mane in the Premier League this campaign and may well retain the Golden Boot that he ran away with last year.

The talismanic Egyptian has now gone an unprecedented seven matches without registering for Liverpool – with Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher labelling the player “selfish and greedy” following Sunday’s 2-1 win at Fulham.

Thankfully for Liverpool, Mane has taken up the goals mantle with 11 goals in his last 11 games to keep Liverpools Premier League and Champions League hopes alive.

“But then, he is in the right shape and maybe a yard away from him is Mo, but somebody else scored; the cross from Robbo [at Fulham], I’m pretty sure Mo would have scored if Gini doesn’t get the ball.

His form has, typically, seen him emerge as a transfer target for Real Madrid and Barcelona once again, with a report on Tuesday suggesting the Reds had been forced to place an eye-watering price tag on the Senegalese star’s head.

“The only thing he did when he was not always in the right spot was work and work and work. That’s exactly what Mo has to do, exactly the same: just work, do the right things and it will come again.

But Klopp’s immediate priority is to help Salah return to his very best form and he feels that Mane could hold the key.

Sadio played pretty much always like this but now he is always in the right spot in the right moment. In football its sometimes like this.

The Senegal international is now just one goal behind leader Sergio Aguero in the Premier League goalscoring charts and former Arsenal striker Wright has challenged Mane to try and emulate Mohamed Salah‘s debut season at Anfield.

The only thing he did when he was not always in the right spot was work and work and work. Thats exactly what Mo has to do, exactly the same: just work, do the right things and it will come again.

Mane has been in brilliant form recently  with 11 goals in his last 11 matches in all competitions with some vital goals boosting the Reds’ Champions League and Premier League title hopes.

Hes just rather unlucky, where Sadio is lucky in the moment – he is in brilliant shape, thats true.

Ian Wright thinks Liverpool forward Sadio Mane needs to become more consistent with his goalscoring if he wants to improve.

But then, he is in the right shape and maybe a yard away from him is Mo, but somebody else scored; the cross from Robbo [at Fulham], Im pretty sure Mo would have scored if Gini doesnt get the ball.

These moments… I was a striker, I had that as well, you think, Oh and then somebody else missed the chance. Thats how it is, all good.
