Tierry Henry declared after Liverpool defeated Ajax, “If I can be that nasty, I will be.”

Thierry Henry thinks Mo Salah’s important goal in Liverpool’s 2-1 Champions League victory over Ajax on Tuesday at Anfield was aided by his “mis-control,” according to Henry

When Diogo Jota threaded a through ball to Salah, the Premier League icon continued, “I might be harsh to imply that Salah’mis-controlled’ his initial touch, with his right foot, but I think it allowed the striker to then ‘attack’ the position a little bit more and get his team going.”

There was a lot of discussion about Liverpool’s poor form before yesterday’s match, with Jurgen Klopp labeling last week’s loss against Napoli as his “worst game” since joining the team.

Salah in particular has drawn attention since some have questioned not only his performances from this season but also from the latter part of the previous campaign.

Salah now has four goals in nine games across all competitions, which isn’t terrible for a player who is out of form. Just think of what a player in peak form would look like.

But here is what Henry said to CBS Sports about Salah’s goal for the Reds in the Champions League on September 13 at 10:20 p.m.

When you mishandle the ball, as he did, Henry said. It actually sets it up since he scored without having to think too much about it.

“You can recognize when you are experiencing that (lack of) confidence and up against the keeper” (then he probably misses).

If I may be so cruel, “but he kind of is-controlled it, and then he had to go and attack it and tackle it because the ball veered slightly away from him. Sometimes when you don’t have to think too much, you can go.”

Liverpool would have been one of the teams that most likely benefited from the Premier League games being postponed last week after their trip to Naples.

They were able to ponder, work out their issues, and try to get as many things off their chests as they could.

Yes, the victory over Ajax wasn’t all sunshine and roses, but there were several standout individual performances, the squad looked much better, and it was time to move on.

However, because their match against Chelsea on Saturday has been postponed, their momentum has been lost, and they will now have to work to regain it until after the international break.
