John Barnes: Liverpool need better attacking players

Image
The Anfield favourite has somewhat defied the current consensus by quashing the ability of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to maintain their goal-scoring form.Barnes insists the Reds must further strengthen their attacking ranks if they wish to continue progressing under Jurgen Klopp.“They need better all-round players,” Barnes said, as reported by the Liverpool Echo. “The front-three are great, but I don’t feel that they are necessarily going to continue to do this for the next two or three years.”Salah is not a centre forward, I don’t think he is a player who can score goals consistently over a period of time. We don’t have players like that.”“We have players like Salah and Mane and, although Mane scored a hat-trick against Porto, they are not out-and-out goalscorers.”

Mido-salah can reach 100goals

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Mido has told the BBC he is "proud" of Mohamed Salah after the Liverpool forward became the highest-scoring Egyptian in Premier League history.Salah's double against Spurs at Anfield on Sunday took his Premier League tally to 23 goals, surpassing the 22 that Mido got during his spells with Tottenham, Middlesbrough and Wigan.Salah, 25, has scored 21 league goals for Liverpool this season following a summer move from Roma, with the other two having come in his days as a Chelsea player."I felt proud after Salah reached my number of goals, and I think he can reach 100 goals easily," Mido said."Salah is on top form, he is strong and fast I'm sure he will score more goals and break more records in the English Premier League."Now he is playing with a very big side, and I want him to focus more and more with the Reds so that he can make history."

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will show “respect” to Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah by allowing them to attend an awards ceremony in Africa this week.The Liverpool duo are to appear at the CAF Awards in Ghana on Thursday night, just 24 hours before the FA Cup third round tie with Everton at Anfield. Both have been shortlisted for the player of the year award, along with Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.And after his side's dramatic 2-1 winat Burnley, Klopp confirmed that both players would be given permission to make the 9,000-mile round trip this week.Klopp confirmed that the pair would train separately at Melwood on Thursday morning before flying to Ghana, but confirmed that Salah, who missed the game at Turf Moor, was a doubt to face Everton anyway due to a groin injury.Philippe Coutinho is also struggling with a sore thigh, and was another to miss the win over Burnley.“Him and Mo are injured,” he said. “Not massively but enough for today, no chance and at least a d…
