Mohamed Salah scored his 24th goal of the 2020/21 season on Tuesday evening.
The Egyptian forward netted Liverpool’s opener in their 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League, with Sadio Mane grabbing the second for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Salah has now scored 118 goals for the Reds in just 186 appearances in all competitions, a quite phenomenal record by a player who’s already a Liverpool legend.
However, there are still some who choose to criticise certain aspects of the 28-year-old’s game, with many labelling him as ‘selfish’.
While Salah is, like any world-class forward, obsessed with scoring goals, he’s also a high-quality playmaker and has contributed a decent number of assists in a Liverpool shirt.
Per Transfermarkt, the Egyptian has set up his teammates on 45 occasions, which means he averages an assist every 4.13 games, a fine return given how often he finds the back of the net.
He’s a brilliant creator and the below video highlighting Salah’s underrated skill will silence any doubters for good.

Such an underrated part of his game
Some of the passes from Salah in that video are worthy of Lionel Messi, Kevin De Bruyne and Bruno Fernandes and the rest of the elite playmakers currently operating in European football.
