Gabby Agbonlahor has spotted evidence of a potential rift between Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool secured a massive 2-1 victory away to Aston Villa last night to keep alive their Premier League title hopes, as the Reds moved joint-top with Manchester City – who are ahead on goal difference – at the summit.

With Klopp’s side having an FA Cup final this week and a Champions League clash with Real Madrid on May 28, the German manager rested a number of his heavy hitters, including Salah, Thiago Alcantara, Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson.

The Egypt international came on with 19 minutes remaining, however, and Agbonlahor saw Salah ‘shaking his head’ in frustration that he had to wait 70 minutes before coming on.

He told talkSPORT: “I could see his body language. The camera kept going to him. He didn’t look happy and when he finally came on – what was it 70 minutes? – and when I looked at him he didn’t look happy, shaking his head as in ‘I’m only going getting 20 minutes’. Something doesn’t seem right between him and Klopp for me.”

Salah, a £36 million signing from Roma in 2017, is leading the charge for the Premier League’s Golden Boot this season.

The 29-year-old attacker has netted 22 times in this competition, but Son Heung-min of Tottenham is hot on his heels, only two behind the former Chelsea winger.

One thing we know about Salah is that he absolutely loves scoring goals and winning individual awards and Agbonlahor added that his frustration last night might’ve been linked to getting little time in which to add to his tally and consolidate his Golden Boot.

But nobody at Liverpool cares about whether he wins the individual award.

The Reds are going for a quadruple this season. Team prizes are the priority and if Klopp feels that resting Salah can boost Liverpool’s hopes in other competitions then that has to be respected, because it makes perfect sense.
