“Egypt went out a little earlier but Mo played 94-95% fit because of the shoulder (injury). It was not that it hurt, but being healthy does not mean you are 100%.

“Then, the pre-season starts again and he always tried everything. The only thing was his body needed time to adapt.

“Still a world class player, still a threat in a game, but in scoring situations not the same calmness, coolness.”

When questioned if there was a time this season where things started to click for the forward, who scored 44 goals in 52 appearances last year, Klopp replied: “Since before the last break.

“It was completely obvious in each session, it clicked again. He's there.

“So that is a time factor. People need, human beings need…it is only you, we, don't give them time, because we don't have the time — the season starts: be ready.

“There is nothing to discuss, nothing to say, it was not try more, do more.

“He was doing everything he can. If you are in doubt easily, then it could affect you, but not for one second was he is doubt and I was not in doubt. Nobody here was in doubt actually.

“It is all good. Even Mo Salah is a human being and he needed time. Everything is fine.”
