Salah was almost replaced before scoring in the Liverpool vs Manchester City match, this is Klopp's explanation - Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah should not have left the field in the match against Manchester City.

Liverpool host Man City in the 11th week of the 2022/2023 Premier League match at Anfield, Sunday (16/10/2022) night WIB. Salah appeared as a starter in the match.

Salah appeared full of determination in this prestigious big match. He even looked very serious and did not smile throughout the game.

False determination bears positive results. He finally scored in the 76th minute and his goal brought victory for Liverpool.

Wrong Almost Replaced

Before scoring a goal, there was an oddity that happened. Mohamed Salah's jersey number is displayed on the substitution board.

Salah himself then crossed to the sidelines. He seemed to have a conversation with Jurgen Klopp.

In the end, Salah stayed on the pitch. The Egyptian then picked up Alisson Becker's pass, escaped Joao Cancelo's cross and beat Ederson in a one-on-one match.

Klopp's clarification

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp then gave clarification regarding the incident involving Mohamed Salah. He made it clear that he didn't really want to pull out Salah.

He said at that time he just wanted to talk to Salah. Klopp did not know what had happened until the star's number finally appeared on the substitution board.

"No, he shouldn't have left. I want to speak to him," he told Sky Sports.

"I didn't know the number came up. That wasn't the plan," Klopp said.

About the Red Card

The Liverpool vs Manchester City match was intense. Even Jurgen Klopp himself got a red card in the match towards the end of the second half.

The reason was that he protested excessively at the referee because he considered them to be silent when they saw Mohamed Salah violated by Bernardo Silva. Klopp then admitted that he probably deserved a red card.

But Klopp insisted that he still did not accept that the referee allowed Silva to foul Salah. Because the violation occurred right in front of the line judge.

"In the end, it might be deserved, but you can't have this situation. It was the clearest foul I've ever seen before a linesman and he wasn't fazed. Clear. They are just watching the game but we [the managers] are involved."
