Jurgen Klopp hopes talk of Mohamed Salah’s early-season slump will be quashed by his two-goal haul in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade.
Mohamed Salah was back to his best as Liverpool beat Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.
Salah scored twice for Liverpool, scoring his 50th goal in 65 games for Liverpool – not bad at all.
‘The Reds’ manager Jurgen Klopp told ‘Sky Sports’ after the game that he “never doubted” that Salah would return to his best.
“I was not in doubt, he was not in doubt, but if you are constantly asked about it, you think something is up.
“You should not think about it, you should not constantly think about how can I score again? It only happens if you work hard, if you are in the right spaces, if your team-mates see you in the right moments and if you make the right runs, then you can score.
“It is an exceptional number and hopefully he can continue.”
Liverpool got an important win after losing in Naples last gameweek. “I think we are not through yet,” Klopp added, whose side travel to Red Star Belgrade in their next match.
“This group will obviously stay exciting until the end, which I thought was pretty clear immediately after the draw.
“You cannot do more than win your own games and then the situation changes in your favour. That happened tonight. But it doesn’t say too much about the group, to be honest.”
