Michigan: Mohamed Salah is capable of delivering another season chock full of goals at Liverpool but his supporting cast must pick up the slack to ease the burden on the Egyptian forward, midfielder James Milner has said.
Salah scored 44 goals in 52 games for Liverpool as they reached the Champions League final and finished fourth in the Premier League.
“He is more than capable of doing that. There is pressure when you have had one good year to deliver again but he is a top player ... He’s going to keep on improving,” Milner told reporters.
“We need to keep improving as a side with him as well, and make sure that all the pressure is not on his shoulders to deliver goals and get us out of tough situations. “
