Van Dijk backs Salah against Criticism

Tue, Mar. 19, 2019
CAIRO – 19 March 2019: Liverpool Dutch defender, Virgil Van Dijk, believes that his Egyptian teammate, Mohamed Salah, is not facing a goal drought and he just needs time to regain his form.

"People can say all they want but I think all the teams in the Premier League would love to have him in their side," Van Dijk told Liverpool official website.

Salah failed to score for his team Liverpool at the last seven games as his last goal came against Bournemouth on 9 February when Liverpool won at home 3-0.

Van Dijk added “The goals will come. That's something for a striker that is maybe going to be in your head but we tell him every time: you just need to keep working, keep going and you will be fine."

Egypt national team manager, Javier Aguirre, decided to rest Salah during the International duty in March and he is ruled out of Egypt clashes against Niger and Nigeria.

Liverpool returned to the Premier League top and they are leading the table with 76 points, two points ahead of Manchester City who still have a postponed game.
