Egypt and Al Ahly legend believes that the performances of Liverpool winger in the pre-season friendlies have put him under pressure.

Salah scored on four occasions during the Reds’ pre-season summer campaign. His goals came against against Wigan, Leicester, Hertha Berlin and Bayern Munich.

Treika argued that the great showings of the 25-year-old winger in Liverpool’s pre-season friendlies put him under pressure, stressing that he should not rush himself on impressing right away.

“Salah’s brilliant pre-season put him under pressure when the season started. Liverpool fans now consider him one of the team’s stars under Jurgen Klopp,” Abou-Treika told beIN Sports following Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Hoffenheim.

The former Chelsea winger scored on Wednesday as the Reds defeated Hoffenheim 4-2 to ease into the Champions League group stage with a 6-3 aggregate win.

“Salah has to liberate himself and not be in a hurry to score goals every game because this will put him under a huge pressure. Salah is a player of a high level and surely is a solid addition to Liverpool, he will become one of the team’s pillars this season,” Treika added.

This marked Salah’s second goal with Liverpool since joining them from Serie A side on a five-year contract during the 2017 summer transfer window.

    Different track, different going but the skill will shine when Salah acclimatises to different tactcis….be patient young man and let it unfold… read the opposition, see the chess board and position yourself to synchronise with the team….always utilising the best option. Good luck…..
