Mido: Salah will force Lallana and Wijnaldum to bench
Former Tottenham and Roma forward Ahmed Hossam Mido believes that Salah will force Lallana and Wijnaldum to the bench, adding that Cuper should learn from Klopp.
Salah joined the Reds from Serie A runners-up Roma on a long-term deal, becoming the club’s record signing as well as the most expensive African player in history, and has hit the ground running, netting four goals in pre-season so far.
“Klopp changed Coutinho’s position giving him a deeper role so that he can field all his offensive stars in the same lineup,” Mido said following Liverpool’s big win against Bayern Munich.
“Salah will always need a defensive midfielder to cover up for him, which will probably lead Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum to the bench unless the Reds are having an easy game,” he added.
As Salah scored his fourth goal in the pre-season Mido compared Klopp’s style of play to Hector Cuper’s, saying the Argentine should change his tactics to help Mohamed Salah.
“Cuper is a great a coach and he has achieved outstanding results with the national team. I just hope he is watching these games and thinking how can he change his formation to make Salah’s job easier. Just like what Portugal did for Ronaldo,” he added.
