Mohamed Salah: 'I'd trade personal honours for Champions League title'

Mohamed Salah: 'I'd trade personal honours for Champions League title'

Mohamed Salah became only the third Liverpool player to score 40 goals in a season in all competitions as they claimed a comfortable 3-0 victory at home to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday.

Liverpool's current form will have brought plenty of joy to Jurgen Klopp's ranks, yet Sadio Mane revealed it was staying "angry" which helped them beat Bournemouth. I don't care about the rest.

"Each goal for me, or for anyone else, is to try to help the team".

He also helped Liverpool reach the final four of the Champions League with eight goals and three assists in 10 appearances.

"If I had a choice between the Champions League and the Golden Boot, then of course it would be the Champions League, no doubt the Champions League", Salah told Liverpool's official website.

The goal also saw the Egypt worldwide reach the 40-goal mark across all competitions; a feat that he achieved in just 45 games. "But let's see!" he said.




How much is winning the Premier League Golden Boot in your thoughts? "I can not lie - it is in my mind", he explained. I know the reason is we come here together to win things but I think the way you try to do it is important. I'm also sure Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero'.

It's in his mind and he says his teammates are doing all they can to ensure he collects the prestigious individual accolade.

"He tried to motivate us like usually and in the end everybody was in the right place at the right time to win every ball".

"I am happy to have this feeling".

You couldn't see it bettered anywhere - not even in Brazil.' Should the class of 2017-18 continue in their current vein, though, there is a chance they will find themselves being discussed in similarly reverential terms 30 years from now. Klopp added on the need to break his trophy duck: "I love watching that kind of football but I don't want to be the entertainer or whatever and it is like, "Oh we had fun but we didn't win anything".
