Liverpool’s Klopp: I wouldn’t want to be in Mo Salah’s position
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has spoken about the great reception Mohamed Salah has been receiving since arriving in Qatar for the FIFA Club World Cup, sees that he wouldn’t want to have the spotlight always on him like that.
Salah assisted as Liverpool secured a spot in the FIFA Club World Cup final after defeating Monterrey 2-1. He was also involved in the winner for Jurgen Klopp’s men which was scored by Firmino.
The Reds will face Copa Libertadores champions Flamengo in the final showdown on Saturday.
“Very good, very good experiences with Salah but the most positive was on the training ground, sensationally good. On the pitch he’s great, really, really good,” Klopp stated in an interview with beIN Sports.
“The stadium [in Doha] was especially loud when Mo came on the screen. I wouldn’t want to be in his position, having all the attention on me constantly. Football is not like this, it is not focused on one player.”
“It looks like the Arab world was really waiting for the sun coming back to show up here. He [Salah] is dealing really good with that but don’t forget he is really a normal person and wants to have some relaxation as well from time to time.”
