Mohamed Salah outlines huge Liverpool objectives

Posted by

Mohamed Salah is eager to break more scoring records after become the fastest player to score 50 goals for Liverpool.

The Egyptian reached the 50 mark in last month’s 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in a club record time of just 65 games as a Red.

His strike in the recent 2-0 win over Fulham took his tally to 52 in 69 appearances across all competitions for the club.

Contrary to suggestions of a dip in form, the 2017/2018 Golden Boot winner leads the club with eight goals and remains just two behind current Premier League top scorer Sergio Aguero.

Discussing his individual figures, Salah told BBC Sport: “I’m glad about that. I’m always very happy and proud to break records, especially records at a club like Liverpool.”

“Being the fastest player to score 50 goals for the club is something great. But I need to carry on and score more goals – I’m looking forward to 100!”

Touching on his desire to lift silverware at Liverpool, he added: “Last season we were very close but in the end we didn’t win anything. That’s something that motivates me much more than individual awards. I want to win something for the club because I love the club. I want to win something here.”

Salah is well on course to break into an exclusive 16-man group of players to have registered at least 100 goals for Liverpool throughout the history of the club.

Whilst individual honours will undoubtedly be in the back of his mind, his main focus will remain on helping the Reds end a six-year wait for a trophy.

The former Roma man meanwhile finds himself in the running for the BBC African Footballer of the Year after being named alongside Sadio Mane on a five-man shortlist.
