It’s all about Mohamed Salah right now. The Egyptian has been in the kind of form you gush about to the friends who don’t even care about football. You tell them Salah has scored thirty goals in thirty-six games for Liverpool. You don’t care that they don’t care. He’s also managed ten assists. They don’t care. If he scores another with his left foot he’ll be Liverpool’s new left foot scorer king or something. I don’t even care about this one. But is that going to stop me from raving about it to my dad later on? Absolutely not.
“I came here to win titles,” Salah said to the BBC.
This season’s Premier League trophy is obviously off the table, as Manchester City have been in exceptional form this year under Pep Guardiola, shoring up the league sometime last Auguest. But next season is next season and next season’s Premier League title is still there to be won. Take the positives.
“I can tell the fans we work 100% to try and win something for the club,” said Salah.
“It’s a long time since the club won the league. It’s my dream to win the Premiere League. But I want to win it with this club.”
He says the right things, Mo Salah. And the thing of it is, I want him to win the Premier League at Liverpool, too. I want them all to win it at Liverpool. Okay, most of them.
But let’s not forget about the progress the team has made in the Champions League this season. Liverpool are a long shot to win the competition but by golly Jürgen Klopp’s men are on the cusp of the quarter-finals after thoroughly beating FC Porto 5-0 in the first leg of their last-16 tie. Silverware is on the table.
And of course, it isn’t all about Mo Salah on the pitch. The ex-Roma winger is thriving off of the controlled attacking chaos provided by Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. All three are here and there and everywhere for ninety minutes. Their understanding with each other, bringing each other into the play, driving forward with their heads up, it’s proved to be a nightmare for the opposition to deal with.
Salah has clearly found his happy place at Liverpool after years of hard work and progress at various clubs. Recognizing his quality and his synthesis with Klopp’s team is a verifiable masterstroke from the club’s scouts.
“It’s easy to play with this kind of quality,” said Salah.
“If you look at me now and five years ago, everything has changed both mentally and physically.
“I’m trying to improve myself every day. I always like to put myself under pressure to improve more.
“I give all my life to football, I only think about football. This is what is on my mind all the time.”
TL;DR: Mohamed Salah went to other clubs to improve his game, but moved to Liverpool for much more. “I came here to win titles.” ItsAllHappening.gif
