Cape Town - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has total
faith in forward Mohamed Salah despite the Egypt star missing several chances
in Saturday's 1-1 draw with Chelsea.
Salah, who was the English Premier League's
leading scorer in 2017/18, has had a slightly slower start to the current
campaign and failed to fire in the draw against the Blues.
The 26-year-old has still managed a
credible three league strikes in seven appearances, however, he appeared to be
below his best at Stamford Bridge and was taken off for Daniel Sturridge in the
Sturridge went on to become the hero as he
fired in a magnificent late leveller in London. Speaking after the match, Klopp
told reporters: "It was not Mo's best game of his career, 100 percent.
"In a game like this constantly in
situations he comes in, that makes you a world-class player. You fail, you
miss, whatever, that happens.
"He wants to be decisive, he wants to
score in these situations. The first ball he missed it was not the right
position. The next one he passed. Why? He could've finished again.
"It's like riding a bike. It's not
like you wake up in the morning and you cannot finish any more or cannot ride a
bike any more.
"That's how it is, you only need to
work for these moments when it's clicking. That's the period he is in, no
problem with that, so all good."
