Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher chose Mohamed Salah to their 2020 Premier League squad on Monday Night Football on Sky Sports.
Six Liverpool players have made the squad, but Sadio Mane has been the most notable omission. Sky Sports experts have chosen Tottenham Hotspur’s Salah and Son Heung-Min over Mane.
Neville described the Egyptian forward as ‘cold-blooded’ and explained that he chose him over his Liverpool teammate.
“The reason I have always chosen Salah over Mane is because he is cold-blooded.” Neville told Sky Sports.
“Mane is a team player, who would always put the team first, but Salah is cold-blooded and that’s not a negative. He makes Liverpool a vicious team and he’s the type that will try again and again, and I don’t know. will stop. “
The selection has been made based on the performance of the last 12 months.
Neville is absolutely correct that both Son and Mane are world class, and every team in the world would love to have them. But Son has been outstanding this season, while Mane is going through a sterile period in terms of scoring.
Salah and Mane are different types of players. While Mane is more of a team player who is a constant threat on the left flank, Salah is a consummate spiker.
There is an element of unpredictability in Mane. Salah score. Salah provides assists. Salah wins matches. Since joining the club for a fee of £ 34 million, has been an epitome of coherence. You’ve set such a high standard that it seems like a normal thing these days.
Salah is a bit more selfish when it comes to scoring goals. He has scored some scandalous goals for the Reds in recent years, which shows his confidence in his ability.
There aren’t enough left-handed attackers in the Premier League who are world-class and stylish like the Egyptian, and he deserves a spot in the 2020 squad.
