Klopp talks about Salah’s contract
With a 3-1 victory in the first leg of the quarter-finals, Liverpool is holding a great advantage before the second leg against Benfica at Anfield. Coach Jurgen Klopp has the right to actively choose tactical options and ensure forces for the next important matches in different arenas.
In the second leg, The Kop has almost the strongest force when they do not have any injuries or suspensions. However, there are two factors to be especially careful about in the match against Benfica: Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota . Specifically, they have received 2 yellow cards in previous matches and if they receive 1 more yellow card, they will be suspended in the semi-final first leg against Villarreal (in case Liverpool go on).
At the moment, Mane and Jota are two important factors in the attack of the Red Brigade. Both opened fire against Manchester City last weekend. And without their services, coach Klopp will have to consider alternatives.
However, while holding the lead and playing at home in the second leg, the German captain can rest Mane and Jota. The first is so that they do not have to get a yellow card that leads to a suspension in the next match in the Champions League. After that, it’s time to recover for the match against Man City in the FA Cup semi-final taking place this weekend.
