It’s ridiculous that a player has scored 25 goals and registered 13 assists in 44 games across all competitions as is still considered to have had a poor season. That is standard Salah has set in his time at Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.

Maybe it’s just a one-off season but he really couldn’t affect the slide as Liverpool fell off the title race. They also exited the Europa league and FA cup with a wimp as their quadruple dreams vaporized.

Salah’s future is up in the air following Klopp’s departure. His post bidding the German goodbye indicated he might be sticking around with Arne Slot. Whether he stays or goes however, he needs to recover his maverick.

3. Justin Kluivert – 36.9%

Son of Barcelona Legend, Patrick Kluivert, has not had the same level of influence in football as his father did. He is not doing shabbily for himself however, with 11 goals contributed to Bournemouth’s season.

He will however look back on his influence in build up, taking on players and affecting the game thinking he can do better.
