African players abroad Salah back to his best for Liverpool after injury setback – Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah has regained his form after the Egypt international scored the winner in the 2-1 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion at Anfield on Sunday.

Salah scored decisively midway through the second half to secure all three points for the Reds, after Luis Diaz’s volley had cancelled out a second-minute strike by Danny Welbeck.

Asked after the game on whether Salah is now back to his best in terms of sharpness after his injury, Klopp said: “Yes, playing-wise, absolutely. Imagine if Mo would have finished off all the situations in his career, that would have been crazy numbers, so it is absolutely fine. Mo as well, like others, was a bit in a rush in the finishing situations in the first half, the finishes were not like they can do it.

“But then being that calm in the decisive moment when you have to finish the biggest chance we had, it was the best football situation we played, that then makes a real goalscorer so I am absolutely happy with everything. He could play 90-something [minutes] and now we just have to keep going.”
