‘Riyad Mahrez Not Right Player To Replace Coutinho At Liverpool’- Micheal Owen
Liverpool legend, Michael Owen has said that Leicester winger, Riyad Mahrez is not the right player to replace Philippe Coutinho at Anfield.
Owen believes that the Algerian International cannot adapt with the work ethics of Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp.
“I was asked this week if I thought Riyad Mahrez, who has been linked with a move to Anfield, would be the ideal replacement for Coutinho but I couldn’t agree,” Owen told BetVictor
“As good a player as Mahrez is, he might not possess the pace or work ethics that Jurgen Klopp might be looking for and I wonder where he would fit into the starting XI – certainly not, instead of the brilliant Mo Salah on the right side of the front three.”
