Charlie Nicholas backs Timo Werner to replace Mohamed Salah
According to former Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas, signing Timo Werner should mean the end of Mohamed Salah at Liverpool. He has backed Liverpool to sell the Egyptian superstar once the German ace is signed (h/t Express).
Nicholas believes that the Reds must prioritize Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane over the Egyptian ace. The comments are surprising considering no other player has scored more goals in the Premier League than Salah since he returned to British shores in 2017.
He has won the Golden Boot in both of his full seasons at Anfield. Salah is again the Liverpool top scorer this season with 20 goals.
Nicholas clearly does not seem to rate the Egyptian as he left him out of his team of the season while Firmino and Mane made the cut. Although Mane’s inclusion is understandable, that of Firmino stinks of bias given the Brazilian’s struggles this season.
“Salah has been great and Liverpool fans love him, but the two they may want to keep are Mane and Firmino.”
An impressive addition!
