Liverpool legend Aldridge says the club should consider selling Salah

Despite being a fearsome figure since his 2017 arrival from Roma, the Egyptian lacked form this season as he missed a crucial penalty in the Reds' 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth on Saturday. The former Liverpool star fears that the club should consider selling the winger.

Mohamed Salah, who had scored a brace in Liverpool's historical 7-0 victory over Manchester United last week, missed a penalty in the second half of the game against Bournemouth, leaving the Reds disappointed after Philip Billing's first-half goal had already given the Cherries a 1-0 lead.

Former Reds striker John Aldridge has told the

Sunday World

: “In the last few seasons, Jurgen Klopp’s team had too much pace, power and desire for these relegation battlers to handle. Yet all that has changed – and I look at Mohamed Salah’s body language, and something isn’t right. After his goals against United last Sunday, I was looking to Salah to lead the team for the rest of the season and starring banging in two or three goals a week consistently. We all know how good Salah has been and still is, but he was dreadful yesterday and won’t need me to tell him that.

“Take his missed penalty out of the equation and he turned in a display that lacked passion – and I hate to write negative things about a player who is an all-time Liverpool great. There may be a debate over whether selling Salah this summer and using that money to reinvest in the team may be an option, but that idea can wait until the end of the season. Between now and then, Salah has to lead Liverpool as the senior striker – and he simply didn’t do that at Bournemouth.”

Liverpool will be back in action against Real Madrid in a Champions League clash on Wednesday as they try to overturn a 5-2 deficit.
