Peter Crouch claims Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah is obsessed with numbers

Peter Crouch is blown away by the quality of Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah, while even making a comparison to footballing great Cristiano Ronaldo.

Salah, 27, has turned into an elite player during his time at Anfield so far and has a staggering 74 goals in 110 Liverpool games.

The Egyptian is a right-winger that manager Jurgen Klopp has turned into a goal machine and he looks like he could score every game.

A comparison to Ronaldo is a notable one, as the 34-year-old is considered one of the best players of all time.

Ronaldo has 602 goals and counting during his club career, which has seen him play across Portugal, England, Spain and now Italy with Juventus.

After starting his career as a skilful winger, he turned his game into becoming a goal machine and has hit staggering heights since.

There was a lot of talk about Salah after his incident with Sadio Mane before the international break, where he rejected the chance to pass to his open teammate and took a shot on goal instead.


Crouch understands that Salah has become more selfish in front of goal and that he’s so driven to score.

“Salah has definitely become more single-minded over the last 12 months, to the point where he looks like he is obsessed with numbers,” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.

“This isn’t a bad thing. I can see parallels with Cristiano Ronaldo, who started off providing magic out on the wings but then turned into a ‘killer’ through the middle. When your average goes from one goal in two games to one in one, you want to take every opportunity.

“He will score 20 in the league season again, at the very least. He is wonderful to watch…” Crouch wrote in the Daily Mail.

TBR’s View:

Salah certainly is the most selfish of the Liverpool front three, but there is no reason why a recent mini spat will derail the team’s pursuit for more silverware.

They have a forward line that may be the most feared in the whole of Europe and they are likely to be on top form when they host Newcastle United on Saturday afternoon.

Salah has been directly involved in five goals in his opening six games across all competitions and there is no reason for him to change his style of play.
