Liverpool News: Mohamed Salah reveals secret to incredible form

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has revealed the secret to his incredible form this season in an interview published in the Red's official matchday programme. The Egyptian has been in imperious form ever since completting a £34 million transfer from Roma in the summer.

The Egyptian has so far scored 31 goals in all competitions – helping Liverpool to third spot in the Premier League table and a foot in the last 8 of the Champions League after thumping Porto 5-0 in the away leg.

Speaking on his excellent performancecs this season, the 25-year-old explained it as a result of Jurgen Klopp's system and how the German has given him freedom to express himself playing behind the striker.

 

'With the boss here, I play a little bit closer to the goal, more so than at any other club or more than any of my other coaches have asked me to,' Salah told Liverpool's matchday programme.

'So I am always in front of the goal to give me the opportunity to score. The manager is always telling me to stay close to the goal in training.”

Salah also noted that he is still working on improving various parts of his game.

'I don't want to say too much because we still have a long way to go in the season and I don't want to give too much away,” Salah added.

“But yes, it's something we have worked on in the training sessions.

'You cannot score 10 goals from 10 balls – that's impossible and I know that I have missed many chances too this season. But I am trying to improve.

'I am always trying to see my weaknesses and then work on them and I am always trying to score in different ways.

'The coaches help me so much to do that and I also work hard alone after the training sessions.'
