Mohamed Salah

According to former Egypt international Mido, Mohamed Salah’s rich success at Liverpool is down to his manager, Jurgen Klopp (h/t The Express).

Salah, 26, joined Liverpool from AS Roma last summer and went on to have a sensational season, scoring 44 goals in 50 games. The Egyptian flopped during his debut Premier League season with Chelsea and was sold to AS Roma after just 13 Premier League appearances over two underwhelming seasons.

But after Salah’s success at Roma, Klopp took a gamble and the move handsomely paid off as the Reds finished 4th in the league and reached the Champions League final last season.

The Egyptian star signed a new five-year contract with the club in the summer and got his second season off in emphatic style too, scoring the first goal in the 4-0 thumping of West Ham last weekend.

It remains to be seen if Salah can replicate his last season’s form but Mido believes that his compatriot’s success is all down to Klopp’s coaching.

“I think the key of Salah’s success last season is Jurgen Klopp. Because Jurgen Klopp put him in the right position,” Mido told Sky Sports’ Transfer Talk podcast. (h/t The Express)

“If you see Salah he was a winger at Chelsea, he was a winger at Roma, he was a winger at Fiorentina, even at Basel. He was a line player – he gets the ball one-v-one and he was far from the goal.

“But Jurgen Klopp has been very clever with the way he has made him play, made him tuck in, made him play like a second striker on the right, always close to the goal, always in that link-up position.”

Mido feels Salah’s blistering form in his debut season at Anfield is because of the lesser defensive work demanded by our gaffer.

“But the best thing Jurgen Klopp has done for him is that he doesn’t make him work hard when he doesn’t have the ball,” Mido added.

“He doesn’t defend a lot so he’s always fresh. If you see him, always when he’s playing there on the right, there is Milner there behind him.

Salah has started very well in his second season at our club. If he manages to reproduce last season’s form once again, I am certain that the Reds can topple Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Liverpool star charged by FA over possible betting misconduct

Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has been charged with misconduct related to alleged breaches of the betting rules from the Football Association, as per the Guardian.

The alleged issue came up in January and the striker has claimed he has never gambled on the sport.

The report claims that the charges are related to the Englishman’s move from Liverpool to West Bromwich Albion in January. Footballers are prohibited from gambling on games or any other matters related to the sport.

The Guardian adds that this issue is to revolve around the disclosure of information as the charge relates to “information relating to football which the participant has obtained by virtue of his or her position within the game and which is not publicly available at that time”.

Sturridge has claimed his innocence and a statement released by the football club read (h/t Guardian):

“Daniel has given his full and unequivocal cooperation throughout this process and has assured the club he will continue to do so. Daniel has also stated categorically that he has never gambled on football.

“As with any issue of this nature, we will allow the process to be concluded in its entirety before making any further comment.”

The English striker faces charges under rule E8(1)(a)(ii) and Rule E8(1)(b), as per the report, and has until 20 November to enter a plea.

The former Chelsea striker had a horrible time at the Hawthorns on loan and saw West Brom getting relegated.

The 29-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season but has scored some vital goals for Liverpool in the current campaign.

Liverpool equal two more records after their impressive 2-0 win over Fulham

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Liverpool don’t seem to be the same team from last season, despite boasting an unbeaten record in the Premier League.

The Reds beat Fulham 2-0 to make it 30 points from 12 games, and are just two behind Manchester City who lead the table.

Our attack hasn’t blitzed the opposition like last season, but the numbers suggest this has been an amazing start to the Premier League campaign.

Ian Doyle wrote for the Liverpool Echo about the latest game and claimed that we have matched our best points tally after 12 games.

Doyle further claimed that our goal difference of +18 was the best in terms of Premier League seasons.

Our attack might not be firing on all cylinders but our defence has been exceptional so far. Alisson kept yet another clean sheet on Sunday, and we also equalled the record for clean sheets from 1977-78 and 1978-79.

In fact, our defence has been the reason why we have done so well this season. We barely seem to concede and Virgil van Dijk has been an exceptional purchase, alongside Alisson.

The pair combined well to start an attack against the Cottagers on Sunday. Van Dijk signalled Alisson to take a free-kick early, and that resulted in Mohamed Salah opening the scoring for the Reds.

The Reds haven’t been that great in the Champions League, and we need to ensure our qualification into the next round.

“I can’t believe it”, “Shocked” – Some Liverpool fans unsure about Mohamed Salah’s choice of T-shirt

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah is one of the biggest stars in football. The Egyptian has grown in stature since his move to Liverpool from AS Roma last season, and helped Liverpool to a Champions League final too.

The former Roma star is also one of the most recognisable faces in the world, and there have been murals, statues and paintings celebrating the success of the Liverpool attacker.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the player wants a bit of privacy and Salah tweeted an image of him travelling “incognito”.

The player wearing a Balaclava would not have been much of a problem, but many fans didn’t like his choice of shirt.

The Egyptian wore a “Project-Playboy” shirt and while we cannot say what his intentions were by sporting the shirt, some of the fans questioned his taste, while others some supported him.
