Jamie Redknapp fears over ‘greedy’ Mo Salah after Liverpool heroics vs West Ham

Jamie Redknapp admitted his fears over Mohamed Salah’s perceived greediness after he steered Liverpool to victory over West Ham.

Salah scored twice as the Reds secured a 3-1 win over the Hammers in east London on Sunday.

The Egyptian grabbed his first with a fine finish to open the scoring after expertly making room for himself, before scoring a magnificent chipped effort after being played in by Xherdan Shaqiri.

Salah has been criticised in the past by some football fans for being greedy on the ball.

But former Reds midfielder Redknapp admits that he does not understand why Salah is not as loved as he should be due to the perceptions some quarters have of him.

“Salah’s desire, the speed, determination for that goal,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports.

“It’s 15 goals now, top scorer, but it still feels he doesn’t get the love we give to some players.

“Maybe people perceive him of being too greedy? It’s incredible. His numbers are phenomenal.”

Meanwhile, fellow pundit Graeme Souness admitted that it took Liverpool a while to get going.

However, the Scot revealed he was pleased to see their ‘makeshift’ them pull together against a West Ham side who are yet to lose in 2021.

Souness said at full-time: “I thought Liverpool were fabulous… they were a bit slow in the first half and there was no sparkle.

“They only had one of their main men up front and boy did he produce in the second half. They were two truly world-class goals.

“If ever there was a time for West Ham to beat Liverpool, it was today. They went into the game with four wins, but the storm never came.

“West Ham were just happy to go along with how the game went but with a makeshift team, I thought Liverpool were fabulous.”
