Roberto Martinez has claimed Mo Salah is now a far better player than he was during his time at Chelsea all because of his ability to be more clinical in front of goal.
He has 37 goals this season and is on track to win player of the season – showing that Chelsea made a huge mistake in letting him leave, and that he could well rival Ronaldo and Messi as the best in the world.
“I think the big change is what he does in the box,” he said on Goals on Sunday.
“I think Salah last year in Roma he was always a threat with his pace and his power.
Now the difference is almost that composure he gets in the box.
“That composure from Salah, to be at the right place at the right time and then make the right call has been the big difference from the Salah we all saw a few seasons ago.
“I think that’s where Jurgen Klopp deserves huge credit to spot a player that wasn’t the finished article and make him what he is now.”
One thing Liverpool have to do is make sure that they turn their form into trophies, and while Salah is out there making sure he clocks up goals and has his own personal records, it won’t mean as much as it should without a Premier League title or Champions League.
Winning the title would be huge for Liverpool, and it’s of course something the club have failed to do in the Premier League era – and with Manchester City being as good as they are along with other sides planning to strengthen in the summer, it would certainly be a huge achievement for the Reds.
