Drogba wants to see Salah back in blue.

Salah encouraged to make transfer

Didier Drogba has joked that he would like to see Mohamed Salah move to Chelsea in a “selfish” transfer.

Drogba is an icon at Stamford Bridge and rated as one of the greatest forwards in Premier League history.

Despite the rivalry between the Blues and the Reds, the Ivory Coast international shared his admiration for Salah and suggested he will remain one of the best players on the planet for a long time yet.

“If I am selfish, I will tell Salah to leave Liverpool and return to Chelsea,” he said. “My opinion is that Salah will remain the best, no matter if he continues at Liverpool or if he moves.

“Any other team would perform better [with him] because he understands what he is doing, is good at scoring and creating goals, and only needs the confidence of the coach.”

Klopp says Rangnick is ‘not good news’

The Liverpool manager says the rest of the Premier League should be wary of Ralf Rangnick’s imminent appointment by Manchester United.

Rangnick is expected to be named as a successor to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on a contract until the end of the season before being handed an advisory position at the club.

Klopp and Rangnick are set to go head-to-head in the Premier League.

The soon-to-be United coach has been hailed as the “Godfather of gegenpressing”, which is a tactic Klopp has frequently adopted in his blueprints. And the Liverpool boss said their rivals are getting a smart tactician in.

“Unfortunately a good coach is coming to England, to Manchester United! That’s how it is,” he said.

“He built two clubs from nowhere to proper threats in Germany in Hoffenheim and Leipzig. His first concern is being a coach and that’s his skill.”

Latest Liverpool injury update

After the return of a number of key players to full fitness in midweek, Klopp may be handed another fitness boost this weekend.

Midfielder Naby Keita has not featured since the team’s 2-2 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion, but he has been back in full training again this week.

After an inconsistent first two seasons on Merseyside, the former RB Leipzig man had shown his class with some stellar displays early in 2021-22.

The match is likely to come too early for Joe Gomez, while Roberto Firmino and Harvey Elliott are set to be out of action for a little longer with their respective injury issues.
