Slot can revive Salah by unleashing struggling egyptian in new role

Mohamed Salah

Arne Slot could be perfect for Mohamed Salah, who has received criticism in recent weeks but remains one of Europe’s finest forwards.

Jurgen Klopp will wave goodbye to Merseyside. There will be song and sadness. Liverpool will remember of the historic journey that has seen success across nearly every possible front. The Premier League and the Champions League? Both conquered.

Klopp’s squad swerved away from their finest form in recent months. They have now crashed out of the Europa League and FA Cup while slumping in the English top flight, pulled away from a gripping title race.

But FSG did not rest on their laurels and, after bringing Michael Edwards back as their new CEO of Football, have moved to appoint Feyenoord boss Arne Slot. It’s not yet finalised but the Dutch manager’s move to Liverpool has been cut and dried.

Arne Slot could revive Salah in a new role

Slot mirrors Klopp in implementing a high-energy, heavy-metal brand of football. He will demand his players to be extremely active in both attacking and defensive moments.

His tactics could be perfect for Mohamed Salah.

Salah has scored 25 goals and added 14 assists for Liverpool this season. But he has been culpable of some below-standard displays in recent weeks to coincide with Liverpool’s toothless run of poor results.

Under Slot, the esteemed Egypt international could be revived. Especially given that the tactician operates with a 4-2-3-1 formation. This could spark a transformation within Liverpool’s central midfield.

Currently, Klopp employs an industrious and multi-approaching engine room to charge his high-octane brand. And while Slot has stylistic similarities to his German counterpart, he uses a No. 10 to spark creativity and maintain fluency in build-up play.

It’s a move that could see Dominik Szoboszlai reach new heights next season. Also consequently lifting Salah back to the top of his game.

It’s a new era at Liverpool. Slot will assess, assemble and reassemble his Liverpool squad as he chews over the optimum starting 11.
