John Barnes: Salah would not do so well in another team
In a recent interview the former hitman, described how the tactics and dynamics of Kloop’s football style have helped Salah become the leader in the race for the Golden Boot.
“How Jurgen Klopp sends his team out gets the best out of Mo Salah,”
“So if Mo Salah plays for another team I don’t think he’d do as well because, while he’s a great player, he’s actually found the right environment for him to maximize his potential.”
Barnes went on to compare Salah to Alexis Sanchez who just joined Manchester United from Arsenal, and his current form is still far from that he had while he was playing for the Gunners.
“Alexis Sanchez in my opinion is an excellent player, equally as good as Mo Salah, but he’s not showing what he can do because he’s playing for a team that probably doesn’t get the best out of him,” Barnes added.
“That’s not to say he’s a bad play, it’s just the way Jose Mourinho sends his teams out, in my opinion, doesn’t get the best out of Alexis Sanchez.”
Salah has been sensational bagging 38 goals in all competitions for the Reds this season and with a clear interest from Real Madrid and their manager Zinedine Zidane, the player’s destination next season remains uncertain.
