According to the Egyptian legend, Mohamed Aboutrika, Mohamed Salah deserves to be Liverpool’s captain because of his excellent contributions to the squad.
The 28-year-old began the Premier League clash with Crystal Palace from the bench on Sunday, but he was introduced in the 57th minute and scored two late goals at Selhurst Park to secure the Reds’ emphatic 7-0 victory.
Salah voiced his dissatisfaction prior to the encounter after being snubbed as captain of the final Champions League group match against Midtjylland in Liverpool, in favor of 22-year-old Trent Alexander-Arnold.
After seeing the effect of his compatriot on Saturday, which brought his score to 13 goals this term in 13 Premier League matches, Aboutrika said the two-time African Footballer of the Year needs to be regarded highly with the honor of captaincy.
A few months ago, Bruno [Fernandes] joined Manchester United and is handled in a great way as he has gained many awards in addition to the captaincy. Why is this not happening in Liverpool with Salah? “Aboutrika said via King Fut.
Salah is the most important man in Liverpool, and no one can argue that. I am not saying this because of what happened with Salah starting on the bench in today’s match.
But generally speaking, Salah may have had a rest from Jurgen Klopp today, and thank him for being very professional, and playing at his best for 33 minutes.
Salah’s excitement about today’s goals is incomplete. He scored great goals, especially the seventh goal, which was literally world-class.
I reiterate that for example, the captaincy of the Egyptian national team is not his right because it is granted by seniority, which should be handled better.
Yet he is the most deserving and worthy of the captain’s armband in Liverpool. These things may seem easy, but players do matter.’, Aboutika said.
