belbalady Mohamed Salah laments the wasted penalty kick against Senegal
Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp stressed his support for Mohamed Salah, the star of his team, who lost qualification to the 2022 World Cup after Egypt’s penalty shootout defeat to Senegal on Tuesday.
The German said in a press conference: “Mohamed Salah wants to win again. His desire will be higher now than ever. He is very smart, he knows that Senegal is a very strong team now. They have a good generation. Salah is fine.”
He added, “I am very happy for Sadio Mane and I feel good. The laser in the penalty shootout was not a good thing. It is different when two teammates compete in a big match like this, but they are very professional. They will deal with it correctly.”
He continued, “Senegal is the strongest team in Africa, and Egypt made their task twice difficult. They were not lucky in the qualifying draw.”
Klopp expressed his happiness with the return of the rule of five substitutions in the English Premier League, starting from next season, saying: “Good news, the number of matches will not decrease, now the Premier League understands that.”
And he indicated that defender Trent Alexander-Arnold could participate against Watford on Saturday, saying: “He wanted to play for England but he couldn’t, his participation will depend on training. I think he will be ready for Manchester City.”
Liverpool is seeking to continue chasing City, the champions of the league, and its leaders with a point difference from the first.
Liverpool will host Watford on Saturday afternoon, while City will visit Burnley.
