Klopp: Why I Won't Compare African Star With Messi

Klopp: Why I Won't Compare African Star With Messi

The 25-year-old's exploits have led Liverpool to third in the league table and nearly guaranteed of a spot in the Champions League quarterfinals after a 5-0 victory over FC Porto in the first leg of their last-16 tie.

Klopp's side start the weekend sitting third in the table, having lost once in 18 Premier League matches, and victory would carry them above Manchester United, who are not in action until Sunday, when they host Chelsea.

Liverpool destroyed Porto in Portugal last week, all but sewing up passage into the UCL quarterfinals, and Klopp cited the quality of the challenges to come in Europe's top competition.

I hope that our team is focused on the objective we have in mind - to get the win (against West Ham) - but for that, we need to give our best.

We play United in two weeks so I needed to watch that and we could play Sevilla again if we go through.

But the 25-year-old, christened the "Egyptian King" in a song sung by supporters, says he is settled on Merseyside. "I was travelling nine hours a day", said Salah, the 2017 BBC African Footballer of the Year.




"He is a pure footballer - he always wants to play and work", said Klopp. "It gives you confidence and I am feeling confident". Every day I see and feel that, even in the warm-up, so it is a fantastic atmosphere.

Klopp's side face West Ham at Anfield today looking to build on their 5-0 win over Porto in the last 16 of the Champions League which was followed by a training camp in Marbella.

Mohamed Salah says Liverpool have no option but to finish in the top four of the Premier League this campaign.

Salah has made a huge impact this season with Liverpool, as he scored 30 goals in all the competitions with the Reds.

Klopp said: "I am really happy we didn't have to play immediately after the Porto game, because it would have been quite hard from this big result and a good game from our side".

"So he [Klopp] helped me to improve myself and to do what I am doing now, so I am happy about that". It's my dream to win the Premier League - but I want to win it with this club'.
