Reds hero John Aldridge: Salah and Shaqiri click together
Liverpool former star John Aldridge praised the harmony between forwards Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri claiming that both players can benefit from the presence of each other to produce more goals.
Both players recently scored and presented good performances as Liverpool overcame Fulham 2-0 in the league.
Shaqiri produced two assists for Mohamed Salah in recent victories over Huddersfield and Red Star Belgrade, which caught the attention of Aldridge, enforcing his claim about the pair’s harmony.
“Mo Salah is getting better again and showing signs of recovery but what sticks out for me is that Shaqiri has got something going on with him,” he told Liverpool Echo.
“They click together. Every time Shaqiri is on the pitch he makes something happen for Salah and vice versa, when he’s out there there’s a better balance to the side.
“You can take any two from Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum but the other one for me – especially at Anfield – has to be Shaqiri.”
“He creates opportunities and looks like he’s got the key to unlock defences.
“Against Fulham he always wanted to get on the ball and was finding space and got that second goal that we needed.”
