Egyptian star Mohamed Salah expressed his pride and gratitude to his Liverpool team-mates after he set another goal-scoring record for the “Reds” in the last round of the English Premier League.
Salah scored a goal during the match in which his team drew 1-1 with Newcastle United last weekend, becoming the first player in Liverpool’s history to score 20 or more goals in three seasons in the Premier League.
“I am proud to score goals for a club like Liverpool .. This number in the Premier League is a big thing for me, and something that makes me feel proud. I just need to continue working hard and achieving more for the club and myself,” Salah said of this historic achievement in remarks reported by Liverpool. And I cannot say that it is only about me. ”
“It’s also about the players who try to help all the time and give me the ball in front of the goal, so I would like to thank them as well for this achievement. They are a big part of it,” he added.
When asked if he could win the Premier League’s top scorer award this season for the third time, the Egyptian star replied: “Maybe!”
He continued: “I think the main goal of the team and for me is to be in fourth place and participate in the Champions League. This is the main goal, and this is the most important thing.”
Salah scored 29 goals and gave his teammates 4 crucial assists in 46 games he played in all competitions this season, and is second in the Premier League scorer list, with 20 goals, one goal away from the leaders, Tottenham striker Harry Kane.
While Liverpool faces the risk of missing out from the UEFA Champions League competition for the first time since the 2016/2017 season, as it is currently ranked sixth in the Premier League table, 7 points behind Chelsea (playing more matches), fourth-placed, last qualified for the continental competition. .
Salah’s companions are preparing for a difficult confrontation against rivals Manchester United this evening, Sunday, at the top of the 34th round of the Premier League.
