Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has spoken out on Mohamed Salah’s angry reaction at being subbed off during their draw at Brighton.
The Reds moved to the top of the table, but were unable to record their seventh win of the season as Brighton fought back to earn a 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.
Liverpool had two goals ruled out by VAR, with Salah denied for offside before he was replaced by second-half substitute Sadio Mane, who also saw a goal wiped off.
Salah was visibly upset as he made his way off the pitch but Klopp played down his reaction and said ‘something would be really wrong’ if he was happy at being subbed off.
The Liverpool manager said: “The day when Mohamed Salah is smiling when he leaves the pitch, something is really wrong.
“I get it 100 per cent but the problem is he was out with COVID for 10 days. He trained one, played 60 minutes and then plays again three days later.
“We just have to be careful. He doesn’t like that, we know that, but that’s it.”
