Van Dijk: Salah always playing well, pressure from the media
Salah ended his eight-game goal drought by scoring a stunner against Southampton to lead his side to a 3-1 victory. The 26-year-old winger scored an outstanding goal following a great solo effort that saw him run from the halfway line to the penalty area.
Liverpool are preparing for an important encounter against Porto in the Champions League quarterfinal on Tuesday, and the Portuguese side is a familiar victim for Salah who had scored visited the net against in Liverpool shirt in last term’s Champions League round of 16.
The Netherlands captain spoke on whether Salah’s general mood has improved since getting back to scoring ways.
“[His mood is] Fantastic. He’s always lively, always happy, always wants to work hard and gives everything for the team. I think that’s what Liverpool is all about. Everyone is giving everything for the team, for the club,” Van Dijk told Liverpool website.
“Obviously he didn’t score for a couple of games, but I think the pressure or the talk only came from the press and the media.”
“He was playing well, he was very important for us and he’s still having a fantastic season.”
