As the end of last season was winding down, Robbie Savage made a claim about Liverpool superstar Mo Salah that now looks incredibly short-sighted.
Jadon Sancho, of Manchester United, was linked with a move to Anfield before leaving Borussia Dortmund and the former pro suggested the England international would be suited to start ahead of Salah for the Reds.
“For me, I would play him next season. This is just my opinion,” Savage told BBC Radio 5 Live Sport back in March 2020.
“The front three, amazing. [Mo] Salah got 20 goals this season and he’s brilliant. [Bobby] Firmino, brilliant. [Sadio] Mane, brilliant – [but] I would play Sancho next season instead of Salah.”
Naturally, Liverpool fans ridiculed Savage at the time – something which has picked up pace again this week on Twitter.
As it stands, Salah has five goals and two assists to his name so far this season; while Sancho is yet to register a goal contribution in his seven appearances for Man United thus far.
Time will tell if the Red Devils winger will go on to become a success, but one thing is for certain – nor in March 2020 or right now is he superior to Liverpool’s No.11.
