Liverpool most in-form forward Mohamed Salah has been compared to West Ham’s Jarrod Bowen, this comparison was from Stuart Pearce. The assistant manager sang the 25-year-old’s praises and claimed that he can get even better. Bowen is having a brilliant season with West Ham United and is what has made the assistant manager sing his praise.
Mohamed Salah Compared to Bowen
The Hammers’ star players have been remarkable this season at the London Stadium under David Moyes, which has seen him heavily linked to Liverpool. Bowen has scored six goals and given seven assists in 23 Premier League games, Bowen is spearheading the Irons to success in the division, as well as the Europa League and FA Cup. Whilst his form is impressive, he still has a long way to go before reaching the same heights Salah has, but Pearce believes there are similarities between the duo.
West Ham United assistant manager speaking above the comparison to Mohamed Salah said: “The comparisons between him and probably Mo Salah, the way Mo Salah finishes where he stands the defender up and stops him and then goes again or uses the defender, you use the defender to curl the ball around into that far corner.”
He also said: “And I think it is just picking up a few comparisons that can help Jarrod with his game a little bit.” “Starting a run than stopping it, killing a defender in his tracks then going again, little things like that, that’s why I think he still has more to come from his game.”
“Good thing with him, he’s got two really good feet, and the last goal he scored was with his head and he’s got a really good leap on him as well. “So all-round he can score with his head or both feet which is a sign of a decent striker and he’s played up front for us as well which has been a real bonus for us as a team.”
He also said he helped Bowen get to where he is today. Bowen is already terrorising defences in the League and could get even better at it if he plays under Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp he said.
