Some Liverpool fans agreed with former Red Don Hutchinson after he said that Mo Salah struggles with the basics of the game.

Hutchinson, who played 45 times for the Merseyside during his playing career, has not been impressed with the Egyptian winger this season. He told ESPN FC that he admires Salah’s qualities, but gets frustrated that he cannot pass a ball five yards and does the basics “really, really badly”.

Is Don Hutchinson right about Mo Salah?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The £135m-rated man’s goalscoring record speaks for itself, having found the net 91 times in 144 appearances since his £34m move from Roma in 2017.

However, his passing holds a lot to be desired. He has accumulated av average of just 28.5 successful passes per game in the Premier League and a pass success rate of 76.1%.

Because of this, supporters agreed with Hutchinson and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he was “bang on”, while another admitted that he wasn’t wrong.
