Liverpool star Mohamed Salah makes emotional statement after Reds “failed” in EUFA Champions League chase



Salah has scored 19 Premier League goals this season with one game to go

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah said he was “devastated” that the club missed out on a place in next season’s Champions League, adding “there is absolutely no excuse for that”.

Salah posted his comments on social media shortly after Liverpool’s failure to finish in the top four was confirmed by Manchester United beating Chelsea.

Liverpool finish fifth and will play in the Europa League next season.
“We let you [fans] and ourselves down,” said Egypt international Salah, 30.

Liverpool won seven of their last eight games with a late aim for fourth, but ultimately failed to recover from inconsistent form for much of the season leading up to that run. United needed just one point at home to Chelsea in the penultimate game of the season to secure their Champions League place and join champions Manchester City, runners-up Arsenal and Newcastle United as a contingent. England in Europe’s top competition next season.

“We had everything we needed to reach the Champions League next year and we failed,” said Salah, who was part of the Liverpool squad that won the 2018/19 tournament and the Champions League final. last year against Real Madrid lost.
“We are Liverpool and qualifying for the competition is the bare minimum.”

“I’m sorry, but it’s too early for an encouraging or optimistic message.”

Liverpool have had a promising start to the season by beating Manchester City in the Community Shield, but have only won two of their first eight Premier League games.

Away from home, they struggled in the top flight before their recent surge of form. Three of their eight away defeats have come against relegated sides Nottingham Forest, Wolves and Bournemouth, while at home in the league they have only been beaten by Leeds United. Liverpool have been clearly beaten by Real Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16 this season, while losing both the FA Cup and League Cup in the fourth round to Brighton and Manchester City respectively.

Salah, who signed a lucrative new three-year contract with Liverpool last summer, has scored 19 league goals this season, including six in 14 games before the 2022 World Cup and 13 in 23 games after the tournament.


‘Stay with this kid’ – Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard reveals the candid message he sent to Jurgen Klopp about the Liverpool youngster 

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard described a conversation with manager Jurgen Klopp about Curtis Jones

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has revealed that he told Jurgen Klopp to stay with Reds youngster Curtis Jones.

The midfielder has taken pride of place in recent weeks as his inclusion coincided with a run of seven wins, nine unbeaten, to secure European qualification next season.

Jones has blossomed following the introduction of Trent Alexander-Arnold’s new role, including supporting him in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Leicester City earlier this month. There was caution in the selection of the 22-year-old after the playmaker suffered a series of injuries which saw his playing time monitored by medical staff at the AXA Training Centre.

“I used to make it personal with my teammates to make sure I was the best. No one coached me, no one did better than me day to day because then I could look a coach in the eye and say ‘no’ I deserve to play in this team because I have shown you every day or most days that I am the best player” the former Reds captain told The Anfield Wrap.

“That’s the mentality you need at Liverpool, otherwise you won’t last long or you won’t play enough. I know [Curtis Jones] has that [mentality],” he added.

“I remember having a conversation with Jurgen and we were talking about Curtis and he said ‘yeah, there are some little things we need to improve in some areas’ and stuff like that.

“I said ‘yeah I get that and obviously you’ve all seen him a lot more than me because he was spending more time at Melwood at the time,’ but I said ‘stay with this kid, whatever you’re thinking keep him and stay with him because he won’t let you down’.

“Once you get him right and you’ve fixed the few little things that you need to fix, he won’t let you down, he’ll be there for you. I think he’s showing Jurgen that now.”

Jones has fired his name into the conversation for a place in the starting 11 next season as the Reds plot a busy summer of additions with Alexis Mac Allister among those. James Milner, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will depart at the end of the season when their contracts expire leaving a number of roles to be filled.
