Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has explained the reasoning behind his decision to substitute African superstar Mohamed Salah when his side were trailing.
Salah enjoyed a superb debut season with the Reds and won the golden boot in the Premier League with 31 goals.
The Egyptian has endured a slow start to the season and he was hauled off after the hour, but Klopp insists it was purely tactical.
"[The substitution] was tactical, he was not injured. It was not Mo's best game of his career, 100 per cent," Klopp told a news conference, according to FourFourTwo.
"But coming in a game like this, constantly in situations like he comes in, that makes a world-class player. You fail, you miss, whatever, that happens. No problem with that.
"But I want him so that he wants to be decisive, to score in these situations. You could see the first ball he missed a bit, it was not in the right position, and the next ball he passed! Why? He could have shot.
"It's like riding a bike. It's not that you wake up in the morning and you can't finish, you can't ride a bike any more. That's how it is. You need to work for these moments when it's clicking. That's the period he's in; no problem with that."
