His ability is quite frightening’: Sky pundit left floored by Liverpool player



‘His ability is quite frightening’: Sky pundit left floored by Liverpool player

Stephen Warnock says Mohamed Salah’s ability is ‘quite frightening’ as he continues to break record after record for Liverpool.

The former left-back donned the colours of the famous Anfield club and he added that he is in no doubt that Mohamed Salah is ‘one of the greats’ of Liverpool.

There is the suggestion that the 30-year-old is having a bit of an off-season.

Well, during Salah’s early struggles and Liverpool’s season that could result in them missing out on a top-four finish, their star man has still bagged 19 Premier League goals.

He has also scored in nine home games in a row – which is a Liverpool record. Added to that, he is on Premier League gaol number 186, the same as Steven Garrard.

Robbie Fowler joked that he is ‘making everyone look bad’, either way, another former Red was singing his praises, as he told The Football Show on Sky Sports.

“He will be one of the greats at Liverpool,” said Warnock. “To replicate that form over six seasons is quite remarkable, to always be the go-to guy and the game-changer with the pressure that is on his shoulders, week in and week out.

“It’s not just being a Liverpool player. It’s being an icon of world football. He’s got the weight of Africa on his shoulders. Every time he steps out, they are watching him. He is an absolute superstar.

“He is motivated every day, to be the one who is talked about every morning. He wants to be adored and talked about all the time.

“His ability is quite frightening. He can have quiet games. Really quiet games. But he is always there or thereabouts.”

For months and months now, many inside Liverpool thought their chances of playing Champions League football next season were down the drain.

But, somehow and from somewhere, they are on the tails of fourth-placed Manchester United, who have lost back-to-back games.

Even if Jurgen Klopp’s side win their remaining three matches, they still might not get it, but with Salah on board, they are pretty sure to make that happen and make their old rivals sweat in Manchester.

Liverpool coach who was roundly mocked leaves after five years with Jurgen Klopp message


Liverpool were ridiculed by some football pundits when they appointed Thomas Gronnemark as their throw-in coach back in 2018 with the Dane now revealing he will be leaving his role at the club this summer

Liverpool’s specialist throw-in coach Thomas Gronnemark has revealed he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.

Gronnemark first joined Liverpool back in 2018 after manager Jurgen Klopp found his team was often losing possession from their own throw-ins. And while the decision to bring in Gronnemark was ridiculed at the time by some pundits, it ultimately proved to be a successful one with Liverpool winning the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup during his time at Anfield.

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol and ex-Everton striker Andy Gray were among those who criticised the appointment of Gronnemark. Nicol branded it “absolute nonsense”, while Gray mocked the idea of a throw-in coach altogether.

“I know how you can take advantage of a situation, throw it to one of your own players,” he said on beIN SPORTS. “That would be No.1. No.2. Keep hold of the ball. Maybe we are going to see Andy Robertson do a headstand and take it.

“Here is a lesson. Pick the ball up, take it behind your head, throw it to a teammate and keep both feet on the ground. I have got a new one. I want to be the first kick-off coach.”

However, Klopp said Gronnemark made an instant impact on his squad as they embarked on a period of success but the Dane has now revealed his association with Liverpool is coming to an end. Paying tribute to Klopp, Gronnemark said he had “changed my life and helped my family”.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, he said: “I’ll forever be thankful to Jurgen for bringing me into the club as well as the staff at Liverpool and all the fans around the world. Jurgen was brave enough to bring in a throw-in coach and that opened up a lot of opportunities for me.

“This job [at Liverpool] has changed my life and helped my family, so I am forever thankful to Jurgen, the staff and the players. And also to the fans around the world, it really has meant a lot.

“I was pinching my arm in the first period when I joined to see if it was real and now our work has not only made a big difference to the club, it has also helped me get to a position where I could make a change in football.

“It was not always my biggest goal to win titles like we did with Liverpool. I’ve won 14 titles with my clubs around the world; teams like Ajax, Flamengo, FC Midtjylland, Philadelphia Union and Toulouse, in France, who recently won a French Cup for the first time in over 60 years. It’s all been totally fantastic.

“But the biggest goal for me has been to improve throws to make it a better game for everyone to enjoy. My job at Liverpool has really helped me achieve that and it’s helped me and my family a lot because now other clubs are looking at it and saying: ‘If Liverpool is using this throw-in coach they maybe we should be too.'”
