It’s safe to say Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah is having a rather brilliant start to the season at Anfield having managed to score nine goals in nine appearances for the Reds across all competitions.
One other Liverpool winger who has not had such a fruitful time at the Merseyside club is 24-year-old winger Sheyi Ojo, who is currently on loan with Championship club Millwall.
Since originally joining Liverpool’s U18 side back in 2011, the winger has been on his fair share of loan deals at clubs such as Wigan Athletic, Wolves, Fulham, Stade Reims, Rangers, Cardiff City and now Millwall.
During his time with Millwall so far, Ojo, who was once described by Cardiff manager Neil Harris as “unpredictable” while he was on loan with the Welsh club, has made just four appearances for the east London club in the Championship in which he has managed to provide just one assist which came during their 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest last month.
Looking at his latest appearance for Millwall in their 1-0 win over Barnsley, Ojo, who started the match but was taken off after 70 minutes only managed to register just one shot on target, fail to make even one key pass, win just three out of the 10 duels he was involved in and lose possession on 10 occasions, ultimately earning himself a rather disappointing overall match rating of 6.6, making him one of the lowest-rated Millwall players on the day according to SofaScore.
Taking all of this into account, it seems as though Ojo’s latest loan spell has not started the way everyone would have hoped it would have.
In our view, if Ojo can’t make the best use out of his loan spell with Millwall after all the chances he’s had at other clubs, then Liverpool should seriously consider letting him go elsewhere on a permanent deal rather than just stringing his career along from club to club on loans.
If the Reds don’t see Ojo being capable of potentially breaking into their first team anytime soon, which admittedly looks like a particularly hard job given the form of Salah this term as mentioned earlier, they should look to see if any other club would be willing to sign Ojo permanently so everyone can move on.
