Liverpool will be counting their blessings that Brandt didn’t fancy a move to Anfield in the summer

Liverpool will certainly be counting their luck stars after seeing just how impressive Salah has been for them this season.

The Egyptian has managed to bag 43 goals in all competitions, an amount that puts them ahead of both Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, and when that’s the case, you know you must be good.

One can only imagine just how different Jurgen Klopp’s side’s season would’ve been this year had they managed to sign Brandt and not gone for Salah.

One thing’s for certain, Liverpool will definitely not be too unhappy about missing out on the German winger in the summer. How fortunate
