Salah proud of 150-goal Reds’ landmark


Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has expressed his pride after scoring his 150th goal for the club in a 3-1 comeback win over Norwich which has maintained the momentum in their title challenge.

Trailing to Milot Rashica’s deflected strike early in the second half on Saturday, Liverpool drew level through Sadio Mane’s overhead kick before taking the lead soon after through Salah’s landmark effort.

The Egypt forward became only the 10th man to reach 150 goals in the club’s history and the second fastest (232 matches) after Roger Hunt (226) to get there.

“It feels great. I’m always proud to score for this club and the most important thing is to win games which is what we did today,” said Salah, who has scored 25 in 30 appearances this season including 17 in 23 Premier League matches.

“We know when you fight with (league leaders Manchester) City, City most of the time win games, so all we can do is focus on ourselves and see what happens at the end of the season.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was asked to name his favourite Salah goal and he reeled off at least half-a-dozen.

“Today was a really cheeky one, to be honest. I remember the Chelsea goal, comes inside and thunderbolt in the corner, a few of the dribblings against City and Watford, the United goal as well, Ali’s pass as well, the Champions League one at City as well was very special.

“I can probably not remember all 150 but I can remember a lot and there were some really good goals.

“The first was at Watford (in August 2017) was probably the easiest. No-one could imagine when he scored the first that he could score 149 more in such a short period of time.”
