Ally McCoist has criticized Mohamed Salah for publicly expressing his frustration towards Jurgen Klopp during Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with West Ham, instead of addressing it in the privacy of the changing room.

Throughout the match, Klopp appeared visibly frustrated on the touchline as Liverpool faced a significant setback in their pursuit of the Premier League title. Tempers flared when Salah and Klopp engaged in a heated exchange of views, with Salah needing to be restrained by teammate Darwin Nunez as he gestured angrily towards his manager.

While Klopp declined to delve further into the incident, he acknowledged that they had discussed it, while Salah issued a fiery warning, hinting at underlying tensions by stating, “If I speak, there will be fire.”

Following the match, former Rangers forward McCoist weighed in on the situation, expressing his disapproval of Salah’s conduct. He remarked, “Not good at all, especially when you see Salah coming back to have another bite and then one of his teammates has to come and intervene.

We’ve both been in dressing rooms where it happens. You don’t agree with what the manager has said and then there’s cross words, but it does not look good. That sort of stuff should be for behind closed doors.”

Salah’s recent struggles in form have fueled speculation about his future at Liverpool, with the 31-year-old potentially considering a departure this summer. McCoist observed, “Yeah, [I think he’ll be leaving]. He has been one of the best players we have seen in this league, nothing short of fantastic for Liverpool. But his form has dipped, I don’t think anyone can argue with that, and it just looks to me as if he might be moving.”

Regarding Liverpool’s position in the Premier League table, Klopp remained pragmatic, emphasizing the need to focus on winning matches rather than fixating on the title race. He remarked, “I don’t think about it really… It’s just we have to win football games and let’s see what that means in the end.” Liverpool currently sits third in the table, trailing behind Manchester City and Arsenal, with Klopp acknowledging the challenge ahead but maintaining optimism about their prospects.
