Mohammed Salah has admitted that walking away from Liverpool is no hurry because he wants to win more titles with the Reds.
In the past 12 months, having guided Jürgen Klopp’s side to the Champions League and Premier League, Salah has firmly established itself as one of the best strikers in the world.
But, although he’s pleased to earn recognition, he said (via Goal) that club captain Jordan Henderson has been the top scorer of this year’s squad:
“You can’t say it, we have many good players. If you asked 10 people ‘Is Alisson the best player?’ Nine of them will say that.
“The same with [Trent Alexander] Arnold, Henderson, Virgil [van Dijk], Salah, [Sadio] Mané.
“We had a great season but if I have to choose one, I will pick Henderson because he is our captain, he’s been here for eight to nine years and faced criticism many times and got over it. He is a great person and always tries to help everyone.”
He goes on in his praise of Liverpool, and his temmates:
“We should make great use of this generation, as we have good chemistry between us and you can find harmony and everyone knows what to do and where to find our team-mates.
“Staying at our peak is not something easy but we’ll play hard to keep winning trophies. It’s impossible to me to say that I have enough trophies and I reached my maximum. I will continue to do my best to make next year better than the one before.
“I’m very happy. I can’t describe my feelings after we won the league after 30 years. I can see people’s joy and this is so important for all of us. I enjoy the atmosphere here. I love this place and I hope to stay for a long time.”
To Salah, who currently sits on 17 goals and seven assists, it has been an incredible individual campaign. This success has prompted (unconvincing) reports of a blockbuster heading away from Anfield.
Real Madrid is frequently named as Salah’s possible suitors, despite the fact they don’t have anywhere near the funds needed to pull off such a move.
But the Egyptian told beIN Sports (via The Mirror) that if they had that sort of money, it wouldn’t even matter.
