Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Egypt international Mohamed Salah could lose his spot as the team’s penalty taker after missing another penalty in last night’s draw with Arsenal.

  Jürgen Klopp has confirmed he will hold talks with Mohamed Salah over penalty taking duties. After the Liverpool striker missed another penalty in the game that drew 2-2 with Arsenal last night (Sunday, April 9, 2023), the Egyptian kicker managed to break the egg for the team to chase the artillery into 1- 2 at Anfield, but denied a golden opportunity to equalize for the UFABET team from the penalty spot in the 54th minute after Rob Holding fouled Diogo Jota in the penalty area.

Klopp admitted Salah could lose his place in the penalty spot after the latest miss.

         And although Roberto Firmino saved Salah from embarrassment by heading in late in the game But Klopp hinted that Salah may have to sacrifice penalty duty after he missed a second penalty in a few weeks having previously missed it against Bournemouth. By the time the penalty shootout Klopp’s gesture has been widely discussed online. The German boss didn’t dare to watch Salah take the penalty. He turned to face the cheerleaders. Facing the crowd in nervous anticipation, Klopp seemed unaware and the clip showed he thought his team had scored.

         But he explained after the match that “I only saw the penalty after the game. Few people in the crowd reacted. So when you don’t see a penalty shoot-out You will react to what people see. And obviously some people thought the ball had gone in but it wasn’t ′′ He missed that goal. That’s why that moment raised his fist. Then I knew ‘Oh Mo didn’t celebrate’ and I knew the ball didn’t go in, that’s it.”

   When he was pressured to decide whether to remove Salah from the penalty shootout duty. After he missed a penalty in last month’s loss to Bournemouth Klopp seemed reluctant to discuss the matter in depth. But admitted: “That’s what we’ll talk about. But not here. ” There are many candidates who can step up to replace this Egyptian star.

         Salah  took over from James Milner shortly after his arrival at the club . If Liverpool decide to change Salah almost made excuses for missing his penalty late in the game but Aaron Ramsdale denied his shot with a world-class save. The Arsenal goalkeeper then managed to save Ibrahima Konate’s shot from point-blank range.
