Salah on United Win: We Wanted to Write History

I mean. They did. They absolutely did.

What’s there to even say after a game like that? Probably that it’s a game that we’ll all be talking about for years to come. That Salah’s hattrick has once again (and how many times do we have to have this conversation?) sealed his spot as one of the greatest players in the world. That it’s incredible what this team has managed when they’re not even playing their best. Mohamed Salah spoke with the club’s website at the end of the game and summed up his feelings about the 5-0 victory.

“As [long] as the team keep winning, I’m more than happy. I’m always trying to give assists – the first one I could have gone alone but I gave it to Naby. I’m trying always to give my best for the team to win, which is the most important thing.”

“From the beginning of the season we tried to win each game. We just play for the title because a team like Liverpool, players like that, a manager like that, we need to play for everything, to play to win everything. It doesn’t matter if now the beginning [of the season] is over or not – in our head, from the beginning, from the pre-season, the manager talked to us [that] we need to win the Premier League, which hopefully we’ll go for that.”

“After half-time we were talking in the dressing room that we need to write history, we just need to keep going and keep scoring goals, try to score as many as you could,” Salah added when asked about the scoreline both at halftime and at the end of the game. “A chance like that will not come often. So we just tried to do our best to win the game like that. We knew before the game it was going to be tough if we wanted to win the game, which is what we did.”
