Mo Salah and Jurgen Klopp clash as Liverpool's title hopes fade
Mo Salah and Jurgen Klopp in a heated argument

What happened?

During Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against West Ham at the London Stadium, Mohamed Salah engaged in a heated argument with head coach Jurgen Klopp just before entering the field.

Egyptian and Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was benched due to his recent performance following his injury. This decision came after Liverpool’s defeat in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday night.

Salah was getting ready to enter the field just before West Ham scored their equalizer. However, after Michail Antonio’s header, Klopp approached Salah to speak to him. Salah raised his arms and seemed to argue back with his manager.

Teammate Darwin Nunez then told Salah to calm down and pulled him away from continuing the heated argument.

What does this mean?

The draw against West Ham dashed Liverpool’s hopes of winning another title in Klopp’s farewell season. They lost points against Arsenal and Manchester City.

Liverpool has not been up to their usual standards in recent weeks. Since a 2-2 draw against the Red Devils on April 7th, they have only won one Premier League game against Fulham and have lost to Crystal Palace and Everton.

Mohammed Salah has not scored in the League since the trip to Old Trafford. However, he did score a penalty against Atalanta in the Europa League, though the Reds were eliminated from the competition after a 3-0 home defeat in the first leg.

What Jurgen Klopp said after the draw against West Ham

I won’t share what was said. But we spoke already in the dressing room, and for me, that’s done.
