Salah Hits 40 Goals As Liverpool Beat Bournemouth

Salah Hits 40 Goals As Liverpool Beat Bournemouth

Having started his senior career with his hometown club, El Mokawloon, in the Egyptian Premier League in 2010, he played for various clubs in Europe before signing a deal in 2017 to play for Liverpool in the English Premier League for a then club record fee of £36.9 million.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is desperate to win the Champions League, saying that was his focus ahead of individual prizes.

Liverpool face Roma in the semi-finals of the Champions League and ex-Reds stopper Bruce Grobbelaar is tipping them to go the whole way. I don't care about the rest.

The No.11 admits he is hunting both achievements but would gladly cast aside those ambitions in favour of Liverpool claiming Champions League glory next month.

Salah's battle with Kane for the Golden Boot took a twist last week when the Tottenham forward was awarded his side's second goal against Stoke with Christian Eriksen's free-kick brushing his shoulder.

The Egypt global is favourite to be named PFA Player of the Year next weekend for a hugely impressive campaign that has seen him net 39 goals in all competitions.




But, with potentially seven games remaining for his team, Salah may yet challenge Rush's all-time club record - 47 goals in a blistering 1983-84 campaign.

Drogba achieved the record by scoring 29 goals in the 2009-10 season to help Chelsea to a treble, and it was equalled a fortnight ago after Salah got the victor against Crystal Palace. "But you can see against Bournemouth that everyone in the team tries to pass the ball to me to help me", said the 25-year-old. You feel all the team want to support you and want to help you score goals.

Bournemouth had contained Salah well until he finally scored 21 minutes from time, drifting behind Nathan Ake and heading in Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross in the 3-0 win.

"It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team", the Egypt worldwide told reporters.

"Mo knows what this means and the way we play suits him", added Klopp.
