Klopp responds to selfish Salah talk

English Premier League

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has responded to the accusations that Mohamed Salah has become selfish in front of goal.

There has been talk from pundits in England that the Egyptian superstar has become a bit more greedy in the box this season.

There was a famous on-pitch heated moment between Sadio Mane and Salah, with the latter expressing his frustration at not being passed the ball by the Egyptian inside the box.

Klopp, however, was quick to defend the 27-year-old, who bagged a brace against Southampton over the weekend.

“People were talking about Mo Salah. Mo was never selfish, or more selfish than he should be," Klopp was quoted as saying by Liverpool Echo.

”A striker in the right position... we have seen goals from Mo where he scores in between four players and finds the roof of the goal. Then when you do not score people say you should have passed here or there.

”Life is not that easy. On Saturday he was very unselfish and he got the balls [passes] back, so he could score. Offensively, all around, it was really tough game.”
