Former Liverpool striker turned popular soccer expert Michael Owen praised Mohamed Salah after the Reds took a resounding 7-0 victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday at Selhurst Park.
Salah came on as a substitute in the 57th minute, replacing Sadio Mane. The Egyptian who scored in his previous four matches scored twice to bring his goal tally to 16 in all competitions this season.
The 28-year-old has been arguably one of Liverpool’s most consistent players this season, and Owen feels the Egyptian has become an “accomplished” attacker.
Owen told Premier League Productions that Salah has become a clinical finisher in recent years for Liverpool.
“He got better in Rome. Even at Liverpool when he first arrived, you could see that he was improving much more than when he was at Chelsea.
“Now he has become an incredibly accomplished finisher. Vey rarely misses opportunities. Always pick the right ending, whether it slides, if it’s out of the box. He has power, he has cunning, he can think, he can surround the goalkeeper with the ball ”.
Salah joined Liverpool in 2017 from Italian club AS Roma for a reported fee of £ 34 million.
He has already broken so many club records and could end up being one of the club’s legends if he continues to play for a few more years.
Owen is absolutely correct that Salah has become a great finisher.
In previous seasons, Salah scored some scandalous goals, but he also missed a lot of golden opportunities. This season, it has become more clinical. In fact, he has taken his game to such a high level that his high-level performances have become a normal routine for fans.
In a season plagued by Liverpool’s injuries, goals from Salah have helped the Reds regain top spot in the Premier League.
However, in a recent interview, Salah has hinted that he would like to prove himself at Barcelona or Real Madrid in the future, but also that he is happy at Liverpool right now.
