On the back of an ‘intense’ season, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is confident Mohamed Salah will get back to his best again as the Reds look ahead to the 2022/23 campaign.

The German mentor recently mentioned that Salah had one of the most intense seasons ever and that the Egyptian is now full of ‘power and energy’ after having a much needed holiday.

Klopp also mentioned that on top of Salah’s club commitments, the star player also committed himself to playing in the Africa Cup of Nations and labeled his schedule as ‘ridiculous’.

“Mo had one of the most intense seasons ever, with the Africa Cup of Nations and all of our games,” Klopp said as per The Guardian.

“Everyone talks about us playing 63 games but we had some players who played a tournament in between as well, which is absolutely ridiculous.

“After a few weeks of holiday Mo is always full of power and energy and he came back in a good shape.

Yes, knowing where he will be, I wouldn’t say the rest of his career because he is a player who can play on much longer, but for the next very, very important years in his career. That gave all of us a boost and him as well.

“He looked really sharp in the whole pre-season to be honest. Long may it continue.”
