Liverpool should have sold Mohamed Salah rather than Sadio Mane, according to football analyst Richard Keys, during the just closed summer transfer window.
With nine points, Liverpool is presently ranked ninth in the Premier League.
In their first six games, the Reds have drawn three, won two, and lost one.
As recently as a few days ago, Napoli humiliated Jurgen Klopp’s team 4-1 in their UEFA Champions League debut.
In evaluating Liverpool’s start to the season, Keys stated that he has been taken aback by their dismal run of form and that the Anfield club is still exhausted after their 63-game run in the previous campaign.
The presenter for BeIN Sports writes in his blog:
“I can’t hide the fact that Liverpool’s sluggish start has me a little surprised. They seem worn out, but I’m confident everything will work out.
Klopp must be concerned that Salah is still far away.
“I realize they had to sell one of Salah or Mane because both contracts were expiring, but right now it appears that they sold the incorrect one, notwithstanding Mane’s obvious struggles in Munich,” the author said.
