Liverpool forward, Mohamed Salah has disclosed that winning the Champions League with Liverpool would mean more to him than any individual accolades likely to come his way this season.
Salah scored his 30th League goal of the Season in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth to extend his lead on the top scorers’ chart.
English Favourite, Harry Kane is following the African Footballer of the year in second place with 25 League goals this season for North London side, Tottenham Hotspur.
The Egyptian winger has, however, downplayed personal glory and accolades, saying he is happy to help the Club and he prefers a Champions League Trophy to a top scorers’ medal.
“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. “
“If I had a choice between the Champions League and the Golden Boot, then, of course, it would be the Champions League, no doubt the Champions League. “
“To win the Champions League is huge for everyone. I don’t care about the rest.”
Salah was also included on the PFA Player of the Year shortlist when that was revealed on Saturday following an incredible debut season with the Reds, for whom he has scored 40 times in all competitions.
