Mohammed Salah Told He Has Lost His Spark Because He Has Become Too Strong

  • Former Reds full-back Jose Enrique believes Mohammed Salah has lost his ability to beat a man because of his muscle
  • Enrique sensationally claimed Salah has become ‘too strong’ since the World Cup in Qatar
  • The former full back says Salah should evaluate the physiques of teammates like Nunez and Luis Diaz

Liverpool ace Mohammed Salah has been told he is ‘too strong' and might need to cut down to rediscover his potent form.

Compared to his past lofty standards, Salah has made a slow start to the season, notching three goals in nine appearances prior to Tuesday, October 4.

A lot has been said about Liverpool’s struggles this season, with many attributing it to the departure of Mane and Salah’s lack of form.

Liverpool legend gives interesting reason why he wants Messi's Argentine to win World Cup

For a former Liverpool man, Jose Enrique, he believes Salah’s slow start could be down to his fitness levels.

According to the former Reds defender, Salah might have bulked to much since the winter of 2022.

Enrique pointed out that the Egyptian maestro has not been the same since the Africa Cup of Nations earlier in the year, and this was down to gaining a bit too much muscle.

"Salah hasn’t been the player since January when he came back from AFCON," Enrique told Lord Ping.
"His scoring since then has been really poor by his usual standards. It would be great for a player like me but for Salah, it’s not good enough.
"First of all, the problem is a lack of competition. For many games, he hasn’t been good enough. At the moment, he’s too strong and you can see he has lost a bit of speed.
