Mohamed Salah needs to relax, says Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp
The Egyptian international is yet to recapture his last season’s form as he managed to score only three goals while assisting two in nine games across all competitions.
And his manager Jurgen Klopp has spoken on the Egyptian’s recent form, saying he has given him a pep talk ahead of the Napoli clash on Wednesday.
The German believes Salah should not be judged solely on his goals as he contributes more to the team than just goals.
“If you play tennis and your forehand is good and the next day your forehand is not there you think, ‘What is it?’ That’s how sport works,” Klopp said.
“It is about your confidence. His game is really good. His last game was really good – he was in the positions but then the last two balls were not too cool. That happens.
“He lost balls in those situations last year. How do you deal with it? Be relaxed, completely relaxed, because there is no need for anything else. Completely relaxed. The quality is there and so everything is fine.”
