With his left boot, an Egyptian talisman at Anfield has terrorized defenders in the Premier League, but he now has another weapon in his arsenal.
Mohamed Salah has demonstrated at the start of the current season that he is not only dependent on a terrifying left boot, leading Jurgen Klopp to jokingly claim that the Liverpool forward “discovered a right foot on vacation” during the summer of 2022. During five spectacular years at Anfield, during which he won three Golden Boots, the Premier League, the Champions League, and the FA Cup, said limb has caused a lot of damage.
Salah’s most lethal weapon has been known to opponents, but containing him has occasionally proven to be impossible. As he develops into an even more complete player, the Egyptian superstar is now aiming to add another string to his bow.
The right foot of Mohamed Salah is how powerful?
The 30-year-old forward typically uses his left foot to score most of his goals and provide assists, but Klopp told Sky Sports that Salah renewed his contract with Liverpool over the summer, indicating that he has been working on other aspects of his game. “I believe he found a right foot while on vacation!
“He always grows. It’s truly absurd. I am aware that when he first arrived, he suddenly had full throttle; the Chelsea goal is rather astonishing. Usually, a player who moves in from the outside spins the ball with the inside of the foot.
Will Mohamed Salah make a comeback?
Last season, Salah scored 31 goals for Liverpool in all competitions, matching his output from 2020–21.
His 257 appearances for the Reds have yielded 158 attempts, rewriting the records after joining from Roma in the summer of 2017.
After signing new contracts, Salah will remain in Merseyside for an additional three years, and Klopp thinks there is yet more to come from a player who has been named one of the candidates for the 2022 Ballon d’Or.
“He’s obviously a top professional and he really strives to add on things to his game,” the German tactician continued.
“He is a top, top, top striker, and with the figures he had—not just in terms of goals scored, but also in terms of assists—significant.” it’s
When Liverpool plays host to arch-rivals Manchester United on Monday at Old Trafford, after opening the current season with back-to-back draws, Salah will be expecting to be among the goals once more.
