Richard Keys has claimed that Liverpool’s poor run of results have been partly caused by “jealousy” in relation to the highest earners in the squad.
The beIN Sports host said he felt there was “a deep unhappiness in the squad”, which has been further compounded by the speculation surrounding Mo Salah’s future and a feeling of the top earners not pulling their weight on the pitch.
It’s a rather sensational claim from Keyes without any evidence beyond reports alleging knowledge of our Egyptian forward’s mindset in regard to his Anfield future.
Having experienced a drop-off in performances following injuries in defence, the second-half of Liverpool’s season has spiraled.
The idea that jealousy could be playing a part, however, is utterly ridiculous given the culture Jurgen Klopp has cultivated.
