    Salah needs to work and the goals will come - Klopp

    Mohamed Salah has been unlucky during his dry spell of form but goals will soon flow once more for the Liverpool forward, according to manager Jurgen Klopp. Salah has only scored once in the past two months, in a routine 3-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield, but Klopp's men are two points clear of Manchester City in the Premier League table regardless. Sadio Mane's fine form has kept Liverpool's momentum up, the Senegal star having hit 11 goals in his last 11 appearances for the Reds. Although Salah has not been at his best, his 17 Premier League goals this term is still only bettered by one player, Man City marksman Sergio Aguero. And Klopp feels Mane, who is now level on goals with the Egyptian, could be an example for Salah to follow when Liverpool return to action at home to Tottenham on March 31 after the international break. "He is in a really good moment, of course," Klopp told Liverpool's official website. "Sadio played pretty much always like this but now he is always in the right spot in the right moment. "In football it's sometimes like this. The only thing he did when he was not always in the right spot was work and work and work. "That's exactly what Mo has to do, exactly the same: just work, do the right things and it will come again. He's just rather unlucky, where Sadio is lucky in the moment – he is in brilliant shape, that's true. "But then, he is in the right shape and maybe a yard away from him is Mo, but somebody else scored; the cross from Robbo [Andy Robertson, at Fulham], I'm pretty sure Mo would have scored if Gini [Wijnaldum] doesn't get the ball. "These moments... I was a striker, I had that as well, you think, 'Oh' and then somebody else missed the chance. That's how it is, all good. But, of course, it's a brilliant moment for him [Mane]." Following Liverpool's clash with Tottenham and trip to Southampton a week later, the Reds host Porto at Anfield for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

    Horoya AC fire coach Patrice Neveu despite victory over Orlando Pirates

    Horoya AC have dismissed their coach Patrice Neveu despite an important win over Orlando Pirates. The French tactician led the Guinean giants to this season's Caf Champions League quarter-finals with a victory against the Buccaneers. Two goals from Abdoulaye Camara and Boniface Haba helped HAC beat 1995 Champions League winners Pirates 2-1 at the Stade Septembre in Conakry last weekend. The result saw Pirates crash out of the continental tournament despite netting a consolation goal through Zambian striker Justin Shonga. HAC have since announced the depature of the 64-year-old trainer, who had joined the club in November 2018 following a spell in Asia as Laos national head coach. The club's secretary-general Kroutimi Mady Kaba confirmed that they have parted ways with Neveu. "Yes it is effective, Horoya AC separates from Patrice Neveu, this Tuesday evening, after a meeting that took place at the club headquarters," Kaba said. "We have separated amicably, we will give a lot of information this Wednesday in a press briefing," he added. Neveu is a well-travelled coach having coached Guinea, Niger, Mauritania and DR Congo national teams on the African continent.

    Mourinho has turned down 'three or four' jobs - but wants to be back by summer

    Jose Mourinho says he wants to be back in club management by the summer and that he has turned down 'three or four' offers already. The Portuguese, sacked by Manchester United in December, has been out of work since. But the former Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter and Porto boss is preparing himself for a new challenge. He says he is waiting for a role of right 'dimension' - but, despite being tipped to manage Portugal at some point, ruled out a national team post. Mourinho, 56, told beINSPORTS: "What I have in mind is that I would like to be back in the summer, in June, for a new club, for a new pre-season. "I know exactly what I don't want - that's the reason I've had to say no already to three or four different offers. "And I know what I want in terms of, not a specific club, but the nature of the job, the dimension of the job. I know what I want and I'm going to be waiting for that." Mourinho says he has been using the time since his departure from Old Trafford to be ready for his next position. And he says his desire to be involved in the busy day-to-day challenge of club management is the reason he won't be taking a job coaching a national team. "A national team job is a very specific job - I like daily football, daily work, I like many competitons, I like many matches and I want to stay at football club level," he added. "When you are working every day in football with six press conferences per week, with three matches per week, with pre-match analysed, with post-match analysed, with all the problems you have day by day, sometimes you have no time to take care of yourself and now I'm having this month where I think I'm going to be back even better prepared. "At this moment I am two and half months without work and I am 'working' preparing myself for the next one. "It's not like I am on holiday, it's not like I am bored - I am preparing myself for the next one." Wherever he is in charge next, Mourinho, who has won 19 major trophies as a manager, is sure he will be a success. "Somewhere, I am going to win again," he said.
