Michael Owen explains the Mohamed Salah theory after Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool argument

Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen has explained what he didn’t like about Mohamed Salah’s public spat with Jurgen Klopp.

Last month, the Reds drew 2-2 with West Ham in the Premier League, dealing another blow to Liverpool’s hopes of beating Manchester City and Arsenal to the league title. Salah was named on the bench by Klopp and was introduced in the 79th minute at the London Stadium.

Moments before being substituted, Salah and Klopp had a heated exchange on the touchline in full view of the TV cameras. After the final whistle, Salah was seen walking through the mixed area and told reporters: “There will be fire today if I talk.”

Salah returned to the starting line-up a week later in Sunday’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur, where he scored the first goal in a 4–2 win. Owen, who scored 158 goals during his Anfield career, explained why he disliked Salah’s frustrations with Klopp.

“(Mohamed) Salah’s conversation with (Jurgen) Klopp was not ideal,” Owen told Gambling Zone. “I can understand (Salah’s) frustration if it was because of lack of time, he is not used to being on the bench, he probably wants to win the Golden Shoe. He is just a competitor who wants to win all the time.

“The best thing would be to keep your head down, people all over the world point to it and say look at the money you’re making, but they’re human beings too and they have feelings.
