The Egyptian football legend has become a symbol of national pride for Egyptians, taking part in numerous advertising campaigns and, most recently, becoming the new face of the Ramadan lantern.

"Full credit to Liverpool, comparing to last season they've improved and grown as a team, they've shown that throughout the season in the Premier League and the Champions League".

Mo Salah has only seven goals left in all tournaments to surpass Roger Hunt's record of scoring the most goals for Liverpool in a single season and he has already joined Hunt and Ian Rush as the only Reds players to have scored 40 times in a single season. This was the first time for Salah to be nominated for BBC African Footballer of the Year. "I don't care about the rest".

Liverpool's terrific trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino made their mark on the scoresheet, with Mane getting the Reds off to a flyer by netting as early as the 7th minute.


Instead the forward reached Trent Alexander-Arnold's cross from the right and guided a header over Cherries goalkeeper Asmir Begovic.

The goal also saw the Egypt global reach the 40-goal mark across all competitions; a feat that he achieved in just 45 games.

That goal see's Salah comfortably ahead of Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot by five goals, while Liverpool are on course for a top four finish, sitting in third place, ten points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea.

He added: "Of course I can not lie - it is in my mind".


"I am also sure that Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane, and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero".

"I will try my best to score again and help the team".

"Second-half I though we improved greatly, I thought we were well in the game until a brilliant second goal from their perspective kills the game".

"When we lost the ball we were like lions, coming back with counter pressing, that obviously makes life uncomfortable for the other side", said Klopp, whose side have now scored 78 league goals this season.
