The legend of France and the former Arsenal and Barcelona striker, Thierry Henry, believes that Diego Guetta’s return to participate again with Liverpool will have a positive impact on the duo, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.
Jota, who recently returned from injury, led Liverpool to a difficult victory over Wolverhampton, in the 29th round of the English Premier League, by scoring the only goal in the match.
Aoua Jota coincides with the decline in the level of his teammates, Salah and Mani, where the first failed to score in the last 5 matches in the Premier League, while the second played 7 games without visiting the net.
But Henry has no doubt that Jota can inspire the struggling duo, and he invoked a similar scenario he lived while at Arsenal to confirm his point.
In statements carried by the British newspaper “Mirror”, Henry said: “In my opinion, Jota is able to restore Mohamed Salah and Mani to their usual level.”
He continued: “In football, as a player, whether Salah or Mane, when you see a person (like Jota) with such a level, they push you to do more.”
He added, “At the beginning of the season, Jota was scoring goals and leading Liverpool to victory, but his injury stopped the team’s development and led to some negative results.”
He continued his remarks: “As a player, during my career (with Arsenal), if I don’t play well, I look at the bench to find (Dutchman) Denis Bergkamp, (Nigerian) and Nwankwo Kanu, and I realize that it is better to do something for my team or the coach will replace me.” .
He continued: “This is what Jota will do with Salah and Mani. Competition between players is healthy for a team like Liverpool, whether it is in training, matches, or even on the bench.”
