- Yasmine El Tohamy - Liverpool legend, John Barnes, claims that Mohamed Salah wouldn’t be as prolific with Bayern Munich as he is with the Reds.

Salah has been recently linked with a move away from Anfield, despite his contract lasting until 2023.

It was believed that his upcoming destination would be Spain, especially following his interview with Spanish news outlet AS, two months ago.

Barnes, however, discussed the possibility of the Egyptian moving to the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich but said he wouldn’t be their main top scorer.

“Of course Salah can play anywhere. He is a very good player. However, the reason for Salah’s and Sadio Mané’s goals is Liverpool’s style of play,” he told SPORT1.

“With [Roberto] Firmino, they have a central attacker who plays withdrawn and allows them the spaces. Robert Lewandowski doesn’t do that, he is a central striker who scores the goals. 

“The others prepare for him. If Salah went to Bayern, he wouldn’t score as many goals because he would prepare for Lewandowski.”

“Salah doesn’t play as a central attacker. If Salah played there for Liverpool, he wouldn’t score as many goals as he does as a right winger.

“Mane is not a central attacker either. If Salah played in Lewandowski’s position and he had two wingers with a different type of player, Salah wouldn’t be the type of player for that and wouldn’t score as many goals.

“If Salah scored the goals, Lewandowski would score less. Every footballer has to choose the type of football that suits him best. I think if Salah went to Bayern, it would not be a success.

He could still win titles and play well, but not score as many goals as he did at Liverpool because of the way Liverpool play,” he conclued.

Despite Liverpool’s disappointing season, Salah has been quite successful on an individual level.

He won the Liverpool Player of the Month award twice, the Liverpool Goal of the Month award five times, and the Premier League Goal of the Month award.

He is also leading the Premier League top scoring charts with 17 goals, three ahead of second-placed Bruno Fernandes.
