Abou-Treika: Salah’s pre-season displays put him under pressure
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.
