Golden Boot is not Salah’s first priority

Mohamed Salah talks about his performance in Liverpool.


Egyptian star has been among the best players of the Premier League since he arrived at Anfield and he has won two Golden Boots since then but he says winning trophies with the team is more important to him.

Mohamed Salah

says that collective success is more important than individual ones to him.

Salah told TV2:

“I’m happy when the team wins, that’s the most important thing.

“When I’m scoring goals and can help the team, that makes me more happy. When I don’t score and the team doesn’t win, that’s a nightmare!

“But I’m happy when we are first, I’m happy when I score goals to help the team because the team comes first before anything and before anyone.”

And about facing Manchester United on Sunday he said:

“The game is really big at the moment, especially because now they are first and we are second.

“They are playing well this season as well. It’s a good game but at the end of the day we need to win that game, I think that’s the most important thing.

“I always say it’s just one game, it’s only one game. But because this one, if they win they are going to be six points [ahead of Liverpool] and if you win you’re going to be the same, it’s a little bit special this game.

“It’s always different. The last two years I’ve always said it’s one game and that’s it, it’s three points. But this game now, because they are first and you have to be close to them and beat them to be first as well, it’s a little bit special.”
