Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp stressed that his Egyptian star winger Mohamed Salah, who has scored only once in the last seven matches in all competitions, will score again and break more records with the Reds.

Klopp, Salah


"It's like strikers are, all of them, when it's going well, it's going well. In the other moments, when you have to go through these periods, I don't think it is a massive difference," Klopp told a pre-match press conference before playing Wolverhampton on Saturday.

"Of course, when you don't score for a while it is a few things - you might not be on your 100 percent confidence level, but the desire to do it grows every hour,"  the German coach added. 

The 30-year-old Egypt international will be making his 200th appearance for the Reds in the English Premier League against Wolves in the 22nd round of the EPL.

When he scores next, Salah will equalise Gordon Hodgson’s record of 126 goals as the most goals scored by any player with Liverpool during as many games in the English Premier League.

Salah has already broken more than 29 records with the team, including the record of the quickest player to score 50 goals after joining the Reds and He is now the all-time scrorer for the team in the UEFA Champions League. 

"That's it and no problem with him scoring or breaking that record. It is a record to be broken. Mo broke a lot and hopefully he can do that with this as well," the German coach concluded.

Salah has scored 17 goals and provided seven assist in 30 appearances in all competitions so far this season for the Reds, who are struggling in the middle of the table with 19 games to play.
