Jurgen Klopp claims break has done Mohamed Salah good as Liverpool go in search of title

  • Egyptian ace without a goal in seven matches for the Reds.
  • Liverpool boss hopeful Salah can find form of last season soon.

LONDON: Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that Mohamed Salah has returned to Liverpool after the international break and said his star man is looking as sharp as ever.
The Egyptian ace has suffered a dip in form recently, as the Reds go in search of their first English top-flight title since 1990. Salah was the star man last campaign when he scored 44 goals in a magnificent debut year at Anfield. But while he has found the back of the net 20 times so far this season, the consensus is that the 26-year-old is playing well below his peak. He has gone seven matches without a goal, the longest goalless streak he has experienced since a 10-game barren spell for Roma in 2015.

But having welcomed him back to Liverpool’s Melwood training ground Klopp revealed the break had done him good.
“He always played pretty much all games, everywhere for country, for us and all that stuff, so it was really important he could have a break,” the Liverpool boss said.
“Now he will be here, a full week to prepare for the rest of the season, so that’s cool. I spoke to him, he looked really relaxed and in a good mood. Now, let’s go.”
Liverpool are currently on top of the Premier League table with 76 points, one ahead of second-placed Manchester City who have one game in hand. Their next clash will be against third-placed Tottenham on Sunday.

Saudi female racing driver to make history by becoming first to compete in the Kingdom

  • Reema made her competitive racing debut in October last year 3
  • Competed in the TRD 86 Cup at Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi

DUBAI: Reema Juffali will create history later this month at the Diriyah Circuit as the first Saudi Arabian woman to compete in an international racing series in the Kingdom.

Reema made her competitive racing debut in October last year just months after a watershed moment for the Kingdom that allowed women to drive.

After a string of impressive performances, she will join the official support race for the Diriyah E Prix, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY series, as the VIP driver for the double header opening weekend at the UNESCO World Heritage site on the outskirts of Riyadh.

“I am thrilled to be the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY VIP driver for the first race of season two. I can’t wait to be out on track racing on home soil for the first time,” Reema said.

“The series has highlighted the innovation and progress of motorsport, giving more opportunity for men and women to compete together in cool electric racecars. It’s going to be an amazing weekend and I can’t wait to be out on the grid.”

Reema made history by becoming the first Saudi female race license holder to compete in the TRD 86 Cup at Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi in October last year, taking second place in the Silver Category and fourth overall. Her previous racing experience also includes the MRF Challenge in India.

“We are so excited to have Reema join us in Diriyah as our VIP driver. Her progress in her first year of single-seater racing is very impressive. To have the first Saudi Arabian woman to compete in an international racing series within the Kingdom is a major milestone for the sport, and one Jaguar Racing are immensely proud to be able to support,” Mark Turner, the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY Series Manager said.

“The Diriyah Circuit has become the home of watershed moments for the Kingdom. We saw the first female drivers here last year, the first unsegregated concerts, and of course it was the first time that Formula E and the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy had raced in Saudi Arabia,” Prince Abdulaziz Bin Turki AlFaisal Al Saud, Chairman of the GSA, said.

“This year we will again see more inspiring moments which help show the world the journey the Kingdom is on. I am sure Reema will have thousands cheering her on, as a professional racing driver I shall be one of them.”
