Mohamed Salah Gives Cold Response When Asked About Relationship With Jurgen Klopp

Mohamad Salah has given a distinctly frosty response when asked about his relationship with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

The Egyptian forward, speaking to Marca, was asked about playing in Spain in the future and refused to rule it out, saying: "Maybe one day."

However it was a question about his current club manager that drew a rather unenthusiastic reply. Marca asked Salah: "How is your relationship with Klopp? Do you talk a lot?"

Salah replied curtly: "It's a normal relationship between two professionals. That's how I'd describe it."

Hardly throwing Klopp under the bus, of course, but not exactly the glowing endorsement we'd expect about one of the best coaches in world football who's been managing you for four years.

In fact, when asked about Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane, Salah replied: "He is a great coach, he has won three Champions [Leagues], he is doing very well with the team. He left and came back to help the team win titles again.

"He was one of my idols when I was little. As a coach, he is doing great."

Conspiracy theorists might point out that that's far more praise than the 28-year-old chose to give his own manager at Liverpool.

The Premier League champions are struggling in seventh spot this season, after an incredibly turbulent 2021.

In his defence, Salah tends to be a fairly reserved public speaker. But if - in our next work review - we describe our bond with our boss as "a normal relationship between two professionals", do not take that as a heartwarming seal of approval.

Elsewhere in the interview, Salah discussed Liverpool's upcoming Champions League quarter-final against Real Madrid and claims he's not thinking about a rematch with Sergio Ramos; the defender whose actions caused the shoulder injury which saw Salah depart in the 2018 UCL final.

"That game is over, so I don't think about that," Salah told Marca. "I think about the team, everyone thinks about their team and everyone wants to win... That's it."

Salah also praised the Anfield support and claimed: "We lose a lot without our fans. I think we are the team that suffers the most without their fans."
