Jurgen Klopp responds to Mo Salah transfer demand rumors!

It was earlier reported that there was a fight between Klopp and Salah which led to the Egyptian demanding for transfer.

Mohammed Salah was on the spotlight as Liverpool thrashed Huddersfiled 5-0 to move to the top of the Premier League. Salah once again created history and was in the score sheet. The Egyptian made his 100th appearance for Liverpool and scored two goals to register his name in the history book.

The Egyptian now has 69 goals for the club, more than any other former or current Liverpool player who has made 100 appearances for them. Salah moved ahead of two former Reds, Roger Hunt and Sam Raybould, both of whom had 68 goals for Liverpool in their first 100 appearances. He’s now also on top of Premier League top scorers for this season with 21 goals, followed by teammate Mane, who has 20 goals to his name. After the game Jurgen Klopp responds to Salah’s transfer demand rumor.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has praised Mohamed Salah, and denied a rift with him, as the Egyptian player became just the third forward to net 20 goals or more in consecutive seasons for the club, after Robbie Fowler and Luis Suarez. Klopp was talking after his side trounced Huddersfield 5-0 with Salah and Sadio Mane scoring two goals apiece, following Naby Keita’s opener after 15 seconds, the fastest goal in Liverpool’s Premier League history.

Klopp moved to quell various rumours that swirled around social media, one regarding him falling out with Salah, the other regarding Roberto Firmino being out for the season. He said, “I always tell you don’t believe three per cent of what you hear on social media. I had no argument with Mo especially after the Chelsea game and Roberto Firmino is not out for the season. He fell in training and the physiotherapist wanted to see what happened overnight and this morning he said, no he still feels it a little.”

The German coach believes that this season is even more impressive for Salah that last campaign, in which he bagged 44 goals in all competitions. “[Salah’s goal record] is just incredible,” Klopp told the BBC.

“It’s such an important season for him, after a flying season in which nearly every shot was a goal, then being assessed by everyone, is it just a one-season thing? Keeping that level [the next season] is an even bigger achievement than scoring 40 goals last season, which was already an incredible achievement.”

“He’s kept that level this season and, thank God, so have the others and that’s why we’re in the situation we’re in.”

Author’s Take:

Salah  joined Liverpool from Roma in 2017 and doesn’t look in any mood to leave Anfield. Salah is the quickest Liverpool player to score 50 goals and given his performance against Huddersfield it doesn’t look like he had a fight with Klopp or is looking to leave the club.
