Liverpool boss Klopp: Salah and I spoke about penalty duty


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admits he's held talks with Mohamed Salah about penalty duty.

Salah converted a spotkick in victory over West Ham in midweek, having missed twice this season.

Klopp said: “We had a conversation and he (Mo) wanted to stay the penalty-taker. We had a normal conversation about it and I said, 'Okay, you are.'

“You don't feel great in that moment and that's what he said. 'I don't feel right in that moment', because the pressure obviously increases with the penalties you miss.

“Then Fab or Trent, who are two and three, give the ball to them. (But) He smashed them and turned it around. This today was a super penalty, that's really clear.

“I think with all the goals Mo scored, we can't just judge it for two missed and go away from it. That's what I meant when I said we'll talk about it. It's a conversation between two grown-up men.
