Ex-Liverpool man: Why Salah, Mane will be ‘knocking on Klopp’s door’
Posted On June 25, 2020
Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will be “knocking on Klopp’s door” trying to play every game possible, according to Danny Murphy.
Following the Reds’ 4-0 demolition of Crystal Palace at Anfield, Klopp’s side require just two more points to secure a first title in 30 years.
If Manchester City fail to beat Chelsea on Thursday that long wait would be over without Liverpool having to kick a ball.

When asked if Klopp might start resting players, Murphy said on Match of the Day: “If they were in the Champions League, I’d understand [resting players] more.
“But if I’m Mo Salah and I’m going for the golden boot or Mane or Trent [Alexander-Arnold, on track to challenge for the record of most assists in a Premier League season], I’d be knocking on [Klopp’s] door saying I want to play these last few games.
“You want to be a part of the greatest team in Premier League history.”
Speaking after the match against Palace on Wednesday, Klopp claims he will only be watching the City match against Chelsea as they play Pep Guardiola’s men next.
Klopp said: “I watch the game not to prepare a celebration but we play City a week later and also Chelsea.
“This game is a really important game to watch for plenty of reasons. Whatever happens… we have no influence on it so I have no interest.
“It will happen when it happens.”
