Klopp believes Liverpool proved Salah is not the only threat
Jurgen Klopp has spoken on how he is happy with Liverpool’s spread of goalscorers following their impressive 2-1 win away at Tottenham this weekend.
While Salah has still contributed two goals in five games for Liverpool this season, it is clear that he has not been quite as prolific in front of goal as he was in his historic 2017-18 campaign.
Although this may be worrying for some from an individual point of view, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has taken it as a positive that his side have a more even spread of goalscorers.
The 51 year old German said, “Of course, it’s important that we don’t have only one goalscorer.”
When questioned about whether the Tottenham win effects his squad’s mentality, Klopp responded “Yes, but that’s with all wins. Even in the pre-season, if we hadn’t had the best per-season then we wouldn’t be in the best shape for all the challenges ahead.”
“We have now won a few games and that’s very good. But it doesn’t change anything for us because we know. Even if it’s a good season, it’s like this game today. This game was really good for my side and my squad is really good. I am happy with my squad.”
Despite the positivity, Klopp is not getting ahead of himself, adding “But we even had problems in this game today, so we will even have problems during the season. How we deal with that, we will see. I have no idea. I don’t have the personality that waits for problems, but I’m also old enough to know that they will come.”
Liverpool’s next game is in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night against one of the tournament favourites, Paris Saint Germain, at Anfield at 9PM Egyptian time. They will then continue their Premier League campaign by hosting Southampton on Saturday 22nd of September at 4PM Egyptian time.
