Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has told Sky Sports that Mohamed Salah was not happy after the match against Leeds United at Elland Road at the weekend.
The Reds got the better of 10-man Leeds 3-0 away from home at Elland Road in the Premier League on Sunday.
Salah scored the opening goal in the 20th minute – his 100th in the Premier League – and had chances to add to his tally.
The former Chelsea attacker had three shots and one was on target.
Liverpool boss Klopp has said that Salah was not happy in the dressing room because he could not score more.
Klopp told Sky Sports: “With Mo’s record, it’s crazy. I don’t know how many he can break and he’s probably desperate to do so. Since he joined us, what a player! And he’s still hungry.
“I saw him in the dressing room and we were all in the situation concerning Harvey but he was still not happy for not scoring one or two other goals. That’s how top-class players are and that’s fine.”
What a mindset!
Salah has developed into a top-class goalscorer and is a key figure at Liverpool.
What is remarkable about the 29-year-old is that he is not a natural striker, yet he bangs in the goals for fun.
The Egypt international forward is at the top of his game at the age of 29.
Salah does miss chances and takes risks, but all goalscorers do that.
Some would argue that Salah is the most important player for Liverpool.
For Liverpool to win the Premier League title and the Champions League this season, Salah will have to be on top form throughout.
