Klopp Explains Salah’s Displeased Expression as He Exits the Field

During the match at Stamford Bridge, Mohamed Salah had what would have been Liverpool’s second goal disallowed at the 24-minute mark due to an offside position. He was later substituted during the second half, leaving the field at the 77th minute to make way for Harvey Eliott.

Salah left the field with a displeased expression, unraveling the bandages he had worn during the game. Upon reaching the bench, he tossed them aside in a seemingly casual manner, perhaps indicating his dissatisfaction with the substitution to Jurgen Klopp.

After the match, the German coach was questioned about Salah’s reaction, and he explained:

“I can understand because if he had scored, he would have set a new record for goals in Premier League openers. But I didn’t think about that. We needed stability and fresh legs. It was super intense for everyone. That’s all I can say about it; his reaction was absolutely okay. If I sub a player and he runs into my arms with the score at 1-1, and he’s a forward who thinks he’s going to score… that’s what would have surprised me, so everything is fine.”
