Salah gets new position

Liverpool Star and Egyptian international, Mohamed Salah has been given a new position at the club.

Salah has been moved from the wing to play as a centre-forward for the remainder of this season.

The new arrangement has Roberto Firmino going back to play behind Salah, while Sadio Mane takes up the right flank with Naby Keita on the left.

According to the club’s manager, Jurgen Klopp “Salah had to adapt a bit to a slightly different position.

“It’s not that much different, but it is different.”

Klopp added: “We need his link-up play, but he is still with the desire and the speed over the first few yards. He’s impressive, and a very important part of our finishing situations.

“Of course he’s young enough to involve a lot more things in his style of play. It’s not just speed, it’s not just finishing, it’s a lot of things, between the lines and keeping the ball.

“But you need your body for that and that was the problem.

“At the start of the season, part of Mo’s body was not perfect. If you work in an office, if your shoulder is not 100 per cent and it is not your writing hand, then you’re okay.

“But if you’re a footballer, you have to wait until it’s 100 per cent. But we knew he was still a world-class player but we had to wait a little bit. “It’s all good.”

Salah scored 44 goals in 52 appearances last campaign for the Reds as a winger.

The forward will hope to lead Klopp’s men to victory when they tackle Newcastle United on Wednesday in the Premier league fixture.
