Liverpool got another comprehensive win against Bournemouth and once again, Mo Salah scored for the Reds. He has now taken his tally to 40 goals in all competitions.
After the Bournemouth game, Mo Salah came in front of the press and shared his opinions about the targets of the season.
Liverpool are already in the Champions League semifinal and are getting ready to face AS Roma in a two-legged tie. They are looking good to lift the title after a long time, while Salah is also expected to get the Premier League golden boot in this campaign.
In that light, when asked about what he wants to achieve from this season, the Egyptian did not hesitate, “To win the Champions League. If you had a choice between the Champions League and [the Golden Boot] then of course the Champions League.
“To win the Champions League is – I can’t say [how good]. I have no doubt the Champions League. To win the Champions League is huge for everyone.”
However, the forward also talked about the individual honour that awaits him in the near future, “It’s also very close, it’s just seven goals. But let’s see. I don’t know how many games there is to go, but we have the Premier League and semi-finals of the Champions League to play.
“Each goal for me, or for anyone else, is to try to help the team.
“Of course it [the Golden Boot] is in my mind. I cannot lie – it is in my mind.”
Mo Salah has been lethal against almost all the teams he has faced this season, and in the process he has scored some spectacular goals as well. Last match was no exception when he netted against Bournemouth.
Following the match, Cherries’ centre-back Nathan Ake gave an insight into the struggle opposition defenders face in trying to stop the quicksilver Salah.
“It’s really, really difficult,” Ake commented. “You always have to be focused because he’s a very good player. In a split second he’s gone. If there is no pressure on the ball, then he can make incredible movement in behind you.”
