Jamie Carragher urges Mohamed Salah to re-focus amid slump in form

Liverpool legend-turned-pundit Jamie Carragher has urged Mohamed Salah to re-focus on the job in hand after experiencing one of the most frustrating periods of his Reds career. The Egypt international has already notched 64 goals and 25 assists for the Reds in the space of 21 months but he has recently struggled for form with no goals or assists from the past five league games.

As such, there have been many who have sympathised with the attacker’s bad run of luck but Carragher had no positive feelings after the Reds scrapped through a close 2-1 triumph over Fulham at the weekend. Speaking on Sky Sports News, Carragher insisted that Salah has been selfish and greedy with his chances over the course of the season but that has eventually come to haunt him.

The former Reds skipper added that the 26-year-old had opportunities to look for teammates around him in the Fulham game and it was disappointing that he could not do so, he said: “He has been selfish and greedy, no doubt. Nobody has been involved in more goals this season he’s been a constant threat. But two or three times today he’s got to get his head up and see what’s around him.”

“Salah has not enjoyed the same level of success from the previous campaign and this can be attributed to the opposition defenders" getting accustomed to his style of play. Nonetheless, he has netted 20 goals through the ongoing campaign and the fans will be hoping that he can regain form “following the international break" as the Reds aim to push for potential silverware.

Liverpool are currently two points ahead of Manchester City in the Premier League standings after playing an extra game more. Elsewhere, they have reached the quarter-final stage of the Champions League and have been pitted to face Porto across two legs next month.
