Salah played for 90 minutes, coach Jurgen Klopp said?

Although the match against Midtjylland this morning was only procedural, coach Jurgen Klopp still surprised when he used Mohamed Salah for 90 minutes.

On the morning of December 10, the final matches of the Champions League group stage 2020/2021 took place. In Group D, Midtjylland welcomes Liverpool in a match that no longer has any special meaning. The home team was definitely eliminated with the bottom of the table, while The Kops won a ticket to the 1/8 round from the previous match with the first place.

Therefore, the football experts predict before the match, coach Jurgen Klopp will create opportunities for most of the stars to regularly sit on the bench as well as young players to express themselves. However, the German military leader was surprised when he launched a very strong squad. Before that, Mr. Klopp often complained about the dense competition schedule that affected his students’ health.

In this match, two Liverpool attackers Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah plowed for almost 90 minutes. As for Jota, he appeared on the field until the 87th minute, while Salah even played the full game. It should be remembered that the Egyptian striker previously plowed his full reception to Wolves in the Premier League last weekend (Liverpool won 4-0).

Explaining his difficult decision, coach Jurgen Klopp said:

“You can change your roster in a match that is not so important, but you still have to keep some pillars. The Liverpool defender is having problems and that is why I let Fabinho play 45 minutes. In midfield, Naby Keita does not play often and he also cannot complete the match.

We decided to use Salah because of the circumstances on the pitch during the game. It is all for professional service. He looked fine and showed no signs of fatigue, if not very aggressive. So I decided to let Salah play the full 90 minutes. I met and talked to him after the first half, Salah said he was fine and no problem. So he continued to play until the end of the match”.
