Mohamed Salah had a quick reply for reporters following Liverpool’s semi-final win
Jurgen Klopp’s side raced into a 3-0 half-time lead following a stunning first 45 minutes, before City ran them close with two goals in the second period. The response wasn’t enough though, as Liverpool booked their place in May’s final against Chelsea.
Following the City clash, reporters gathered in the mixed zone to ask players questions. As Salah walked past, one journalist asked when the Egyptian would speak again, and quickly replied as per The Mirror:
“When we have won all four!”
The quip was clearly light-hearted, rather than a serious prediction. However, it it does show the confidence of the Premier League’s top scorer, and that the topic of the potentially historic achievement is on the minds of Liverpool players.
Trent Alexander-Arnold defenders Liverpool teammate following goalless run
Salah has had an incredible season for the Reds, scoring 29 goals in 41 games, and is comfortably the league’s top scorer.
However, Liverpool fans are growing concerned with his current run of six games without a goal. In fact, the 29-year-old has only scored once from open play since his return from the Africa Cup of Nations, which was at home against Norwich City in February.
Salah’s teammate Alexander-Arnold isn’t concerned though. The pair have formed an unbelievable partnership on the right-hand side, and was surprised that people are criticizing Salah.
He told The Mirror:
“I think really it’s unfair at the moment what people are saying. The levels he gets himself too, he’s kind of a victim of his own success. He’s still top goalscorer in the Premier League and he’s only one behind me in terms of assists. And people are saying he’s having a bad run of form? He’s nearly top goalscorer in the Champions League as well.”
Much has been made over the future of the star winger, with Salah’s contract expiring next summer. Alexander-Arnold added:
“What he has done for us over the last five seasons has been outstanding. Look, it’s unfair for people to say he is going through a bad patch. We all have belief that he is going to score goals for us. It’s only a matter of time before he puts it in the back of the net again. That’s it.”
