Salah must find the consistency of Messi - Arsene Wenger

Former Arsenal coach has spoken about the incident that happened between Mo Saah and Sadio Mane last weekend.

Sadio Mane was furious after he was substituted in the game against Burnley and it was due to Mo Salah not passing the ball to him when he clearly in a good position to score.

Speaking with Bein Sport, Wenger has now come out in support of Mane and claim Salah should learn when to pass and when to go for goal himself.

The former Arsenal coach also praise the ability of Bobby Firmino and how he has been helping the team.

‘He [Salah] has similarities with Messi,’ Wenger said.

‘He must find the consistency of Messi.

‘I find he’s a good finisher but Messi has the complete thing, he gives the final ball as well. 

‘Salah is a bit obsessed with finishing himself.

‘That’s a dimension he’ll get certainly, when he grows a little bit older, to find the moment when you have to give the ball and when you have to finish. 

‘But I like him very much, he has huge potential. Mane as well.

‘But you forget a little bit the guy who sacrifices himself is Firmino. 

‘And like Suarez did for Messi and Neymar, [Firmino] is the guy who works for the team, who works for everybody and gets them to shine. 

‘This piece of the jigsaw is always difficult to find, a striker who is generous.’
