Mane, Salah and Firmino are the stars 2005 Liverpool never had - Luis Garcia
Former Liverpool star Luis Garcia says Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane are the stars his side never had.
The star trio have already hit 45 Premier League goals between them this season – more than the grand total amassed by 13 of the other 19 teams in the table.
And ex-Spain international Luis Garcia, who left Anfield a decade ago after three seasons that saw him lift and FA Cup and the UEFA Champions League trophy, believes they are what set Jurgen Klopp’s side apart from the historic team of ten years ago.
“The difference is that in our team there were no star individuals,” said Luis Garcia.
“We knew that we did not have players like Firminho, Mane and Salah, who can create a chance or goal from nothing.
“We did not have that, but we also created chances and everything we did was built on teamwork. It was very difficult to score against us.
“This current Liverpool side is different – they are a team that always wants to attack and generates many chances and score many goals because they know they are strongest in their front line.”
