Jurgen Klopp Insists Salah’s Goal Drought Is Normal

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Mohammed Salah’s drought in front of goal is a ‘normal’ spell ahead of the Manchester United Premier League showdown.

For club and country, the Egyptian hasn’t registered his name on the scoresheet for a total of eight matches. The attacker has managed a single assist in the last Premier League match against Manchester City that ended in a 2-2 draw.
Mohammed Salah’s last goal for Liverpool was in the 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion on March 12.

Jurgen Klopp insisted it is normal for the player to undergo such times when asked whether he is worried about his club’s top scorer ahead of one of the biggest rivalry football matches between his side and Manchester United on Tuesday.

“It is a completely normal spell [Salah] is going through,” Klopp said in a press conference ahead of the game.

“We have spoken about all the physical demands he faced in the last few months so it is completely normal. I liked the game against City a lot, it was a really good football game, and it’s only a question of time when he will score as well.

“He was unlucky in a couple of moments and we all know if you don’t have luck as a striker you don’t even try. It was close enough now for a couple of times. The moment will definitely come.

“I am really happy with the performance he showed a few days ago.”
