Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp discussed debutant Mohamed Salah’s lack of defensive contributions during his side’s 1-1 friendly draw with Wigan.

Klopp was asked about Mohamed Salah’s debut, and his assessment of the Egyptian’s performance.

“You saw he had no idea how we defend usually, so he was really not involved in this,” the German admitted.

“He had two days with us, then he had to go to Paris, get the papers, but now he’s here and we thought let’s play him,” he added.

He stressed that Salah was used to another way of defending.

“He’s really used to a completely different way of defending, but the first situation, nice sprint. And the goal was maybe the easiest situation in the game, but they played a few wonderful pieces of football,” he concluded.

Salah scored the equaliser minutes after Wigan took the lead in the first half.
