Michael Owen makes admission about Liverpool duo

Michael Owen has claimed that Liverpool duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are not “natural finishers”. Salah scored Liverpool FC’s opening goal in their 1-1 draw with Newcastle United in the Premier League on Saturday. The draw notched Liverpool's hopes of finishing in the top four. Former Liverpool star Owen is a huge admirer of both players but he feels that they do not possess the instincts in front of the goal that the Reds need. Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Owen said: “That’s the problem, Mane, brilliant player, scores lots of goals. Salah, an unbelievable player as well, scores lots of goals. “But they’re not natural finishers, they’re not someone that you can hang your hat on. They’ve scored goals consistently because Liverpool have, like today, created so many chances. But they’ve been wanting, or the team have been found wanting a lot of the season with missed chances.” Liverpool FC will face Manchester United in their next Premier League game on 2 May.
