‘Sell Salah tomorrow’ – Liverpool fans demand immediate transfer after Southampton loss
Liverpool: Klopp responds to Salah rumours
Liverpool fans want transfer chief Michael Edwards to cash in on Mohamed Salah now after the Reds fell to a 1-0 defeat against Southampton. The Reds are now without a win in their last three games and Manchester United have the chance to move above them at the top of the table this weekend against Burnley.
It’s been a dire run of form for Liverpool following back-to-back draws against West Brom and Newcastle.
Southampton had themselves struggled over the festive period, but Liverpool were caught out early on by a brilliantly engineered free-kick by James Ward-Prowse which was finished off expertly by Danny Ings.
Liverpool dominated possession as they have done in most games this season, but Southampton’s defence were comfortably dealing with any threat the visitors had going forward.
Salah has been Liverpool’s go-to man this season in front of goal, but he appeared to be on the periphery for most of the game and struggled to make any impact.

His dip in form over the past few weeks comes after comments Salah made in the Spanish media where he refused to rule out a move in the future to Real Madrid or Barcelona.
“I think Madrid and Barcelona are two top clubs,” he said a few weeks ago.
“Who knows what will happen in the future, but right now I am focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League with Liverpool again.”
His comments angered some fans on Merseyside, partly due to how many of their players in the past have made the move to Spain.
And Liverpool fans appear ready to see the back of their talisman following the defeat to Southampton.
One fan fumed: “Would sell Salah tomorrow if a good enough bid came in. Been pathetic since he gave that interview.”
Another tweeted: “Sell Salah quick before everyone else finds out he’s done for.”
A third said: “I’d sell Mo Salah 2moro for the right money… don’t care how many goals he’s scored.”
A fourth posted: “Just sell Salah man, I’m tired. Can Madrid just put a bid in I’m on my knees.”
Another wrote: “Sell Salah now that his price is high, and buy someone who actually knows how to play football as well as score goals.”
One other fan posted: “Sell salah and get a proper forward and get Jota back in ASAP. Top 4 is the best we can do this year!”
