Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Mohamed Salah “could have scored more” so far this season.
The Egyptian King has struggled to hit the heights of last season, when he scored 44 goals in all competitions.
Klopp has frequently vented his frustration at Salah’s critics, but has conceded that his No.11 should perhaps have found the net more frequently given the number of chances he has had so far this campaign.
“How people judge it, I have no influence on,” Klopp, said, according to FourFourTwo. “That’s how it is. It’s a free world and we can judge things however.
“It’s all good. I think he has scored seven so far in the league. Who has scored most? [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang? And he scored twice in the last game, so nobody is 15 goals away.
“The season is like it is and we all have to start new. You can take nothing for granted and think things will be easy.
“He could have scored more with the chances he’s had, but there is nothing else to say.
“Just try and get yourself ready for the next game, try to do your best and then after the season you will get judged, not during the season. You can do that, but for us that’s not really important.
“As long as the boys are fit, healthy, focused and ready to train and ready to work, I’m completely fine.”
