Klopp: Salah is not selfish


Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp dismissed criticism of his star striker Mohamed Salah as being selfish and praised the Egyptian international’s brilliant start to the current season ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Salah is the top scorer in the Premier League this season with 13 goals after 14 games, and the “29-year-old” tops the list of players who have made most goals (eight goals) compared to only five assists in 37 league games last season.

On Friday, Klopp told reporters, in response to a question about whether he spoke to Salah about the way he behaved with the ball on the field: We did not talk specifically about this, because it was not necessary. These things happen naturally. We have never criticized him for selfishness before, because he never was. Experience benefits any player and makes them know how to behave in different situations and in every spot on the field. He has experience now. He is very calm and did not lose his appetite for recording and technically developed. I see that he has more time to see the right things in different situations, more often he makes the right decision.

Liverpool is third with 31 points, two points behind leaders Chelsea and one point behind Manchester City. Wolverhampton comes eighth with 21 points.
