Jurgen Klopp will unleash the real Mohamed Salah for Manchester City this weekend at Wembley Stadium.
The Liverpool boss believes the Egyptian will rediscover his true form, not only in the FA Cup semi-final showdown, but in Liverpool’s quest for history next month.
Salah was left out of the Reds’ starting XI for their Champions League clash with Benfica in midweek, but there is no doubt he will be back on Saturday and Klopp is confident that Salah will find his best form. To be honest, Salah has been out of form lately, the Anfield boss said, saying: “I know Mo will finish strong.
“At the moment we have to recalibrate because for us every game is a final. Our problem is that in January he had the most intense period of his entire career – the game was over and Egypt played already.” He had a full 120 minutes in the final.
“The role he plays is super, super huge. He’s got a lot of responsibilities in locker room meetings and stuff like that, with no breaks. Then you have the talk of being a superstar in your own country, everyone. All want something from you. It’s all super intense. Again, it’s great for combat, but right now we’re in a phase where there’s no downtime, which is totally normal.
Salah – given his staggering record – has gone an incredible 753 minutes without a goal in Liverpool’s open games. And he sometimes looks both lacking in confidence and energy. Still, the old Salah had some flashes and he returned in the Premier League against Manchester City last Sunday, providing an assist for Sadio Mane and almost scoring the winner for Diogo Jota . The answer, says Klopp, is to make sure the record-breaking striker knows he can be himself and keep trying the things that propel him to the top of world football.

Klopp said: “A player like Mo who likes to dribble – he’s really good, he scores fantastic goals off the dribble. I should have said to him, ‘Don’t dribble? “No! It’s “dribble at the right moment and keep it, just keep it” — all of that. It’s a process. It’s not a long process, a week or two. Beginning in early January, we Every game has an endgame – it’s crazy! Gosh, I want to have a whole week to train. But we don’t have it, it’s okay, we deal with it. Mao will deal with it.”
