Liverpool does not remember such a crisis in the era of Jurgen Klopp. Everything that worked flawlessly in the last two seasons is now almost non-existent. The defense looks terrible in some moments, the midfield is completely out of shape, and there is selfishness in the attack ?!
This last claim was supported by Liverpool legend Michael Owen with his crazy theory. He says that there is a great rivalry between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in the attack. The argument for that claim is a detail from last night's game against Chelsea when Mane did not want to fall and tried to win a penalty after the obvious contact with Christiansen.
"I can't believe he didn't fall in that situation ... All right, it was a good touch and he probably thought he could score a goal. But he did something similar recently against Sheffield." "I just wonder if it’s because Salah is the first penalty taker.
Maybe Mane thought Salah would get a chance to score a new goal if he fell. We are witnesses that the two of them have been chasing the status of the best scorer for several seasons, "said Owen.
The famous Englishman is aware that his theory will cause a lot of ridicule.
"Maybe this is a bit of a crazy theory, but the two of them have a huge competitive spirit ... We have already seen situations where they do not want to pass the ball to each other in chances." "We saw selfishness and a bit of dissatisfaction in their reactions.
That's how this theory went through my head because I've already seen Mane fall before in situations like this, "said Owen. Salah has scored 17 goals in the Premier League this season, while Mane has been the scorer only seven times.
Last season, the Egyptian was the team's top scorer in the Premier League with 19 goals, and Mane scored one less. The season before that, they both scored 22 goals in the season, since Mane scored two goals against the Wolves in the last round.
Is the Senegalese really jealous of the Egyptian? If this theory is true, it will be a big problem for Liverpool, although this theory seems ridiculous and most believe that they both want the best for the club. Regardless of Mane and Salah, Klopp will have to take some urgent action to get the club to play as in previous seasons.
