Klopp speaks about Mohamed Salah form ahead of Man City clash
Liverpool will play against Man City at Anfield in the first leg of the Champions League quarter final on Wednesday night, with the second leg set to be held at Etihad Stadium on April 10.
The 50-year-old manager discussed the importance of the Egypt international, who scored a total of 37 goals in all competitions for the Reds this season. He also emphasised the role the whole team had in helping Salah reach his current form.
“I think Mo has made strides forward within this team through the way in which the team play and the way the other lads interact with him on the pitch: the way they look to him as such an important player and the way everyone unselfishly tries to play him in. The defensive work is done for him, that way he regularly gets into goalscoring positions,” Klopp told UEFA.com.
“With some of his goals he had to beat five men so I can’t say he profited a lot from what the others did, but with a lot of his other goals he did profit from it. And I believe this interaction has allowed him to take the next step so everything’s gone well so far,” he added.
