Graeme Souness, a Liverpool icon, has demanded more from Reds superstar Mohamed Salah following another quiet performance from the Egypt international. Salah spent the majority of the Merseyside derby tie between the Reds and bitter rivals Everton as a passenger.
Graeme Souness Talks On Salah’s Theory
Liverpool’s somewhat poor performance at Goodison Park meant that despite a fiercely contested contest between the teams, they could only bring one point with them to the opposite side of Stanley Park.
Although the woodwork was hit on several occasions, Jurgen’s team didn’t have a ton of opportunities to score a goal. Salah, along with fellow Reds attackers Luis Diaz and star summer acquisition Darwin Nunez, struggled to exert much of an impression the entire time.

Salah appeared particularly angry after he was left out of the scoring during last week’s 9-0 thrashing of Bournemouth. The Reds’ number 11 has scored just two goals in six games this season, an unquestionably dismal performance for a player of his caliber.
Graeme Souness, on the other hand, has proposed a notion as to why the Egyptian has failed to reach his normal heights in recent weeks. Graeme Souness said on Sky Sports, “I’m watching Salah for Liverpool vs Manchester United, and [Lisandro] Martinez goes straight past him in the first five minutes.”
Graeme Souness said that throughout the rest of the game, Mo Salah searched for Martinez and tried to find his location and since then, Mo Salah has not appeared the same. He also said that he is just hoping that salah gets the lucrative contract he wants.
According to Graeme Souness, he hopes this isn’t salah getting semi-comfortable in his (salah) chair since he (salah) just received a big contract. He also said that because he supports Liverpool, he hopes it enrages Salah.
To keep Salah at the club despite rumoured interest from clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona, the Reds rearranged their wage structure as part of the mega-money contract extension Salah signed earlier this summer. After the final whistle at Goodison Park, Klopp immediately shifted to the defensive while talking about Salah’s recent performances.
When asked if the 30-year-old would be spending more time out wide this season, the Reds manager responded: “I’m not sure what you see there. It’s not more than in prior seasons. We do not desire that. Mo should be in that role, as well as other key jobs, which he has held in the past.
“We specifically wanted to use Sallah more strategically today. But there wasn’t much time for us to train. We only got better. I think I wasn’t clear enough about what I wanted, despite the fact that I talked about it a lot in the first half.
