Salah could have scored more this season – Jurgen Klopp
The Egypt international had a slower start this season as he ended the prior campaign with a total of 44 goals in all competitions while only managing to find the net nine times in 20 appearances for the Reds since August.
Klopp has revealed several times his upset for Salah’s critics, claiming the Egyptian only needed time to recover after his arm injury and the fast return due to the World Cup in Russia
“How people judge it, I have no influence on,” Klopp said.
“That’s how it is. It’s a free world and we can judge things however. It’s all good. I think he has scored seven so far in the league. Who has scored most? [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang? And he scored twice in the last game, so nobody is 15 goals away.”
“He could have scored more with the chances he’s had, but there is nothing else to say.”
“Just try and get yourself ready for the next game, try to do your best and then after the season you will get judged, not during the season. You can do that, but for us that’s not really important,” Klopp concluded.
Salah will look to add to his tally just two days after finishing 6th in the Ballon d’Or rankings as Liverpool travel to Turf Moor to face Sean Dyche’s Burnley.
Only Cardiff and Fulham have conceded more goals than Burnley in the Premier League this season and Salah will be hoping to capitalize on that.
