Mohamed Salah describes what a trophyless season will do to Liverpool as, “We need.”
Mohamed Salah believes that Liverpool will be motivated to rebound strongly from this season’s setbacks in the upcoming season.
Jurgen Klopp’s team will finish the 2022–23 season without a trophy, a far cry from the highs reached the previous year, when two major awards were won and the Champions League final was reached.
The only thing left to play for is getting into the Champions League, but the Reds’ 4-1 loss at Manchester City on Saturday has made it even less likely that they will finish in the top four at the end of May.
Salah told BT Sport, however, that he is confident Liverpool will draw lessons from the numerous defeats they have experienced this season: “Next season, it will make us more peckish. Being eliminated from all competitions this season is difficult, but football is football, and we must accept it. The best course of action is for us to recover the following season.
Salah’s 11th goal against City in a Reds jersey made him the first player in the team’s history to score in four different games against the reigning Premier League champions in the same season. Salah’s goal opened the scoring in Saturday’s heartbreaking loss at the Etihad Stadium.
When asked how he continues to play a key role in games of significant importance before the game, the Egyptian responded, “I don’t know. Since it’s a game that people all over the world watch, I always try to get ready well before the big games.
“Perhaps Man United was just making fun of me during the first two seasons by saying, “You couldn’t score against us. What will Cancelo do to you in the upcoming game, Robbo and Trent constantly try to remind me. This has always been the case between us.
