Head Coach

Jürgen Klopp has the best trident in the world but he no longer knows how to motivate them

Liverpool's front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have been the best in the world for years but why have their numbers dropped?

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has created one of the best front three in the world with the African duo of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah and also Brazilian attacker Roberto Firmino. The three have brought success to the club with their incredible partnership.

They won the 2019 UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup and the 2020 Premier League, Liverpool's first in 30 years. The trio have suffered visible decline since winning the Premier League and have been mostly about individual brilliance and not a team effort.

Mohamed Salah has been the only consistent and standout player among the trio, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino taking turns with inconsistency and injuries respectively. Whatever happens in a team is down to the manager and it's down to Klopp to get them together again.

Jürgen Klopp has a contract till 2024 at Liverpool and if he would be more successful and see out his contract at the club, it's down to the three forward players. He has to get them functioning as a unit again and not as individual players that they have been functioning lately.
