Jurgen Klopp believes Mohammed Salah will be remembered as one of the greatest strikers of all time after he helped Liverpool to victory.
The Egyptian king scored twice in the first half as Liverpool held off a second-half Tottenham Hotspur rally to win 2-1 in London on Sunday.
The 30-year-old now has 14 goals this season and has scored 10 times in his last ten games after scoring only four in his first ten.
When asked about Salah’s form, Red’s boss Klopp said:
“Mo had a slow start, but he was involved in the most chances in Europe in football but he didn’t take them and we didn’t take them. That’s what can happen as a striker, it’s completely normal”.
“When you look back at his career in four, five, six years, everybody will remember one of the best strikers they ever saw because his numbers will be absolutely insane”.
“But tonight what pleased me the most was he scored the two goals but he played like a real, real team player. I wasn’t surprised by it but it was just important. He was all about first defending, and then he will get his chances again (in the second half)”.
“He has a pretty big one which he takes with one touch, if he takes with two touches he could have finished it off. Really pleased for him, top performance and showed outstanding attitude”.
