[SOUTHAFRICA] Salah praised by Klopp and Howe after Bournemouth demolition job

Liverpool striker Mohamed has been the subject of high praise from both his own manager and boss Eddie after the Egyptian ripped the Cherries apart in a 4-0 win for the Reds.

’s charges went top of the Premier League, at least for the time being with an awesome display of attacking football that left Howe’s side with no answer and Salah was the only Liverpool player on the scoresheet ending with a hat-trick.

Salah’s second goal was particularly pleasing for Liverpool’s German manager as the forward saw off a dreadful challenge from Bournemouth defender Steve Cook, who also put through his own net in bizarre fashion for the third of the day.

“Whatever you do in a football game you need someone to finish it off, and what Mo did around his two goals in the second half is just exceptional,” said Klopp.

“I don’t know many players who would score those two goals.

“The first in the second half was a foul actually but he wants to score, stays on his feet and still scores. Not the most impressive finish, but surprising.

“It’s very good for us; it’s just really brilliant what he did, I love that mindset. His desire to score goals is obvious; nobody should be surprised about that.

“And his third goal is outstanding again. Really how he set it up and all that stuff, that was good.”

Howe offered praise for Salah while criticizing his troops for falling of the pace in the second stanza.

“He looked very good today, his movement was very good, he was razor-sharp, we did struggle to handle him; he’s one of the best in the world,” said Howe.

“We had to open up once they were in front, and that produces more chances on the counter-attack.

“The frustration would be with the second, third and fourth goals.

“We were well in the game at 1-0 down and I thought we were set up to have a really good second half.

“But the second goal just seemed to knock the stuffing out of us.”
