Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp insists Mohamed Salah’s quality was never in doubt despite poor run

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted he never doubted the ability of Mohamed Salah despite his eight-game goal drought.

The Egyptian has been under fire for failing to provide a similar amount of strikes as last season, while his performances have also been questioned.

Mohamed Salah celebrates his stunning goal against Southampton.

His incredible solo effort against Southampton on Friday night helped the Reds overcome a tricky Southampton 3-1 at St Mary’s.

And his boss was quick to stick up for him, agreeing that goals of that quality in high-pressure moments define the game’s great players.

“Oh yes. But it was never in doubt that he was a great player in my side”, said Klopp.
