Mo Salah says his personal dream is to win the Champions League with Liverpool – but he is prepared to sacrifice that for the good of the club.
Salah was, of course, injured in the Champions League final against Real Madrid last season in that challenge with Sergio Ramos, which was a cruel end to a brilliant year.
For him, it’s perfectly understandable that he would want to put that behind him. For Liverpool, though, the title is such a big deal – given the choice between the two, most Reds fans would want the Premier League.
Via the Daily Mirror, Salah said: “I will be honest with you, the most prestigious competition for me is the Champions League, but the dream for the entire city and the club is the league.
“I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but if we win both that would great. This is what we are trying to do.”
With 17 league goals so far this season, he hasn’t hit the incredible heights of last campaign, but his overall game is still world-class – even without scoring recently, he’s been performing well.
Salah’s attitude to the situation also shows a lot about the man – he really gets what being a Liverpool player is about and is in tune with supporters.
Winning both competitions is still a possibility, but one or the other seems more realistic. Hopefully, the Reds can win the league title this season, so he can focus on his own aim of the Champions League next year!
