BBC pundit Shay Given stated that Jurgen Klopp avoided selling forward Mohamed Salah in the summer transfer window as the manager dealt the situation widely.
Liverpool had a good summer transformation this time as they bought four new players. Reds are currently unbeaten across all competitions this season.
However, keeping Salah at the club this summer was the best decision by Liverpool. He has been the best player by some margin in last five campaigns.
The Egyptian international is currently 32 but his form his not dipping with his age. Last season he 30 goals and provided 16 assists.
He is not slowing down with time as looks to break the deadlock once again. Saudi club Al-Ittihad was keen sign him but Jurgen Klopp didn’t allow it.
Given now claims that Klopp avoided a serious issue by turning down such offer. He said :-
“I think it was absolutely vital that Mohamed Salah didn’t leave too, despite the bids for him from Saudi Arabia that were reportedly getting bigger and bigger as deadline day went on.
“Liverpool have plenty of attacking options but the psychological impact on the club would have been huge if Salah had gone – he is a brilliant player of course, but it would also have done serious damage to the belief of the squad if they had lost him.
“I would not be surprised if the Saudis come back in for Salah next summer but, in the meantime, he is hugely important for what they will hope to do this season – and a title bid is surely part of that plan.”
