Plenty of Liverpool fans were furious with pundit Alejandro Moreno after his previous comments resurfaced claiming that the Reds can “do better” than star man Mohamed Salah.
This is a surprising comment considering his goalscoring return for us since his £34m move from Roma in 2017. During the current campaign, Salah has found the net 20 times and provided nine assists in 40 appearances.
Is Mohamed Salah underappreciated by fans of other clubs?
Moreno told ESPN FC that the Reds “can do better” than Salah and added that there is a player out there that could be far more influential than the Egyptian.
With this in mind, supporters were incensed with Moreno and made their feelings clear about him on social media. One fan described his view as a “horrendous take”, while another labelled him as the “worst pundit on television”.
He gets so much disrespect

Coming from the Columbus Crew and Houston Dynamo legend Alejandro Moreno who scored a whopping 52 career goals playing as a forward
You’re not even qualified to say Mo Salah’s name

Salah is a world class, footballing superstar and the only reason people doubt him is they expect his debut season every year. The man’s not gonna break the premier league goal scoring record every year 😴

Guy is the most expensive RW in the world. How easily can these people forget how he led the team to the 2018 CL final on mostly his own. This is also gonna be a 20 goal+ season for him, whenever it resumes… What more do you need from a winger… The lack of respect is unreal.

Ale Moreno is the worst pundit on television, so I’m not surprised he would have this opinion. https://t.co/9Re08CYczV
