Why Salah is expecting more goals from penalties -VAR

The Reds striker thinks that the introduction of new technology will win him more penalties. Salah is already off the mark for 2019-20 and has added another medal to his collection following a UEFA Super Cup win over Chelsea.

He faces tougher challenges this season, though, with opponents marking him out as a considerable threat and the introduction of technology bringing Video Assistant Referees into the Premier League.

Some of Liverpool’s rivals have already been left cursing VAR and Salah admits he is not a fan.

He said: “I don’t like it … that’s my answer, always. I don’t like it. I love football how it is

“It’s like that with the mistakes of the referee, with the aggression from the player sometimes.

“It’s OK sometimes to protect the players from dangerous play. But OK, that’s it, in my opinion that could be the only reason that happened, just to protect the players.

“But for me, I accepted the football with the mistakes of the referee, mistakes of the player, I don’t know, whatever. That’s how football gets more excited.”

Salah can, however, see possible individual benefits to VAR as a man often on the receiving end of rough treatment.

He said: “More penalties for me, you will see that.”

Spot-kicks could give Salah the chance to enhance his already impressive goal scoring figures with Liverpool, but he claims his main job is to create opportunities for others.
