Mohamed Salah spoke to him ESPN Brazil about life in Liverpool, where he admitted he sometimes finds things “difficult” to deal with.
What’s the matter?
Now the £200,000 per week The man said he often struggles with the distractions that come with playing for Liverpool.
Speak with ESPN Brazil, Salah said: “It is difficult to concentrate. I know how to stay focused, but it’s tough. There are too many distractions, too many people talking about everything. The team was fine when I was at the Africa Cup of Nations but they said, ‘How long are you going to be there? When are you coming back?'”
If Salah struggles to deal with distractions, he certainly doesn’t show it on the pitch.
Of course, the Egypt international hasn’t scored in his last three Premier League games but he’s still playing at a very high level.
Salah set up Sadio Mané in Sunday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City with a brilliant pass and has continued to torment defenders despite failing to complement his 28 goals in the last few weeks.
Now, should he be reading these comments, it’s up to Jurgen Klopp to help his talisman deal with the distractions he claims are troubling him.
Liverpool helps Mohamed Salah
Luckily for Salah, the quality of his teammates helps take the pressure off his shoulders.
As mentioned, the 29-year-old hasn’t scored in three Premier League games while he’s also failed to score in both games against Benfica.
Had no one else been promoted Salah would certainly have been harshly criticized for not scoring but thankfully Roberto Firmino, Mané and Diogo Jota all helped.
With attacking prowess like this, it’s no wonder Liverpool have reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup and Champions League while also being in a title race.
Hopefully Salah can rediscover his shot on target soon.
