Liverpool legend Carragher hails Klopp for this reason

Salah is proving himself the bargain of the summer after moving to Anfield from Roma, with 17 goals in just 21 appearances making his £36.9 million fee look like a snip.

But he has become Jurgen Klopp's focal point.

Liverpool fans definitely won't have enjoyed the latest comments from Egypt manager Hector Cuper about their talisman Mohamed Salah.

Cuper said Real Madrid was attracted to bring Mohamed Salah after impressing with his performance in Liverpool.

They're not negative ones, instead they focus on his future, with people suggesting that the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are interested in him.

"He is always practising and that's why it's easy for him to score in the games".

Hector Cuper: 'Real Madrid want Mohamed Salah'

Philippe is one of the best players in the world and his free-kicks are amazing.

That all means it will be tough for the King of Cups side to keep hold of their star. To get Salah, Real Madrid must spend big funds. He is the closest thing we have seen to Thierry Henry in the Premier League since the Frenchman hung up his boots, a terrifying blend of lightning pace, intelligent movement and superb finishing. At home to NK Maribor, he played to the left of Roberto Firmino to accommodate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the right, and notched a goal before being withdrawn for Daniel Sturridge.

With the hopes and dreams of a nation on his shoulders as he placed the ball on the penalty spot, it was a strike that required mind over matter, and it was his mental strength rather than the power in his shot that ensured the ball would find the back of the net. The talent, who is comfortable in either the No.8 or No.10 midfield roles, is in high demand and is expected to star at next year's World Cup in Russia.

It's been a great start for Salah, let's hope it continues! In qualifying, Salah scored 11 goals and six assists in 13 matches.

And Klopp conceded that this win was not as comfortable as the result suggests. "It is still possible so we will try and do it tomorrow", he said.
