Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah highlights the best way to approach young players with pieces of advice that could help them

Mohamed Salah explained his method of approaching the young players at Liverpool with advice that would help them. His peers well respect the Egypt captain and he has taken a role as a mentor to youngsters.

Despite the ambitions, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has relied on the academy players instead of using the January transfer window. The Reds are currently fighting Arsenal and Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Furthermore, progressing in the FA Cup and the Europa League, the team has already secured the Carabao Cup. The academy players have repaid the faith shown by their manager by consistently pushing the team through the current injury-ravaged period.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Curtis Jones, Ryan Gravenberch, Alisson Becker and Diogo Jota are the pivotal players currently facing lengthy injuries. Salah, Dominik Szoboszlai, Wataru Endo and Darwin Nunez recently returned from their injuries which put further pressure on the youngsters.

Salah told Premier League Productions (h/t Liverpoolfc.com) that he shows the youngsters that he cares about them before giving advice. He said:

“I think the main point for me is to try to talk to them and show them that you really care about them before you give them advice. If you give them advice, they wouldn’t really listen to you because [I think] if you don’t show that you really care they won’t take it.”

Klopp changed the responsibility for Salah this season as he nears the latter stages of his peak years. The 31-year-old showed adaptability and continued to be prolific for the club despite the change in his style.

Salah has relied more on teamwork and creativity, linking up with players while staying wide during the possessional phases. He only drops narrow in the final attacking phase to score or create goals for his teammates.
