Liverpool players were in disbelief at what Mo Salah did during training



When Salah’s shot flew into the net, there was an ‘Oh my God!’ by one of his teammates, while others couldn’t help but laugh out loud as he walked off in celebration.

Salah then turned to the camera and joked: “Here we are in”, acknowledging that he couldn’t have scored a better goal and that training was over.

The 30-year-old has scored 17 goals in all competitions this season but has looked well short of his own record in recent weeks, failing to score in any of his last four league games.


His sensational volleying in training has suggested his confidence isn’t an issue, but fans have been calling for him to save some goals for matches to save Liverpool’s season. Fan reactions on social media:
Please do this over the weekend and for the rest of the season,” one fan wrote on Twitter. “We need this shooting Salah to show up!!!!!!! Not the selfless Salah!’ added another.

Liverpool have failed to attack on several occasions this season and have paid the price, with Jurgen Klopp’s men currently 10 points off the top four.

They were particularly toothless on their last visit to Amex Stadium when they were thumped 3-0 earlier this month.
