Jurgen Klopp And Mohamed Salah Involved In Serious Argument After Liverpool Star Was Dropped For Draw At West Ham

Jurgen Klopp argument with Salah

Jurgen Klopp found himself in a touchline disagreement with Mohamed Salah during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday.

Salah, initially benched, was visibly frustrated when Klopp decided to substitute him in after West Ham‘s equalizer, signaling tension between the two.

Manager Klopp was seen giving instructions to the Egyptian, which led to a heated exchange.

Salah was furiously at the German, who appeared to be backing away to diffuse the situation.

Striker Darwin Nunez, who had also been left out of the starting XI, eventually intervened to hold his teammate back.

Klopp was asked about the incident after the game and refused to comment.

He said:

No [I can’t say what was said], but we spoke about it already in the dressing room. For me, it’s done.”

However, when walking through the mixed zone, Salah told reporters: “If I speak, there will be fire.”

Klopp rung the changes after a 2-0 defeat to Everton on Wednesday night – which all-but ended Liverpool’s hopes of winning the Premier League title.

It followed a recent 1-0 defeat at home to Crystal Palace and elimination from the Europa League at the hands of Atalanta.

Klopp has announced his decision to leave Liverpool at the end of the season after a glittering nine-year spell, with Feyenoord manager Arne Slot lined up to replace him.

However, the Salah incident is the latest blemish on a disappointing finale to Klopp’s swansong season.

Salah is Liverpool’s top goalscorer this term with 24 in all competitions, but the 31-year-old has been among those criticised for his performances in recent weeks.
