Jordan Henderson feels the growing criticism surrounding Mohamed Salah will only help the player to perform better.

Salah had a quiet start to the season but has managed to up the tempo as he seems to have recovered from his early struggles. The Egyptian international has been given the charge to lead Liverpool’s Premier League challenge and has so far done a wonderful job netting 14 goals in the top flight.

But Salah’s recent antics has raised questions as the Liverpool forward has been accused of diving in recent matches. Salah converted a penalty which proved to be the winner against Brighton & Hove Albion but he appeared to have dived in the penalty box to earn the spot kick.

The Liverpool captain said, “He will do things that some fans might not see that often but they should enjoy him because he is world class.

“It was a penalty, a clear penalty. There’s nothing to talk about that.

“In terms of Mo, I would think away grounds would be appreciative of what they see. The things he does, I’m sure he is a joy to watch.

“If they try to put pressure on him, they will only make him better. It won’t bother him. He’s so strong, I know he is.

“The more people are against him, the more he will want to prove them wrong. I’m not worried about that. When he goes to away grounds, people should appreciate him. He will do things that people want to see.”
