After being crowned PFA Player of the Year as reward for a stunning season at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah has set his goal on winning the Champions League.
Salah has been a sensation since swapping Roma for Anfield last summer in a £34.3million transfer and against West Brom on Saturday he struck his 31st Premier League goal of the campaign, tying the record for a 38-game season.
Liverpool will battle As Roma in the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday and Salah’s dream is to consolidate the recognition he has received from his peers by making a mark in Europe.
“My personal ambition is to win something with the team. I always think about the team, I don’t think about myself,” remarked Salah .
“The most important thing is to win something with the team and we’re very close now with the semi-final. Hopefully we’re going to win.
“The team has helped me a lot because of the way we play. They pass me the ball a lot and always try to find me.”
Salah was decorated at the 45th PFA Awards in central London at Grosvenor House on Sunday evening after leading the vote ahead of Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City’s mid-fielder. But for City boss Pep Guardiola, De Bruyne is more worthy of the award due to his performance over the course of the entire season.
Guardiola said, “I know my opinion about this awards. If he (Kevin) doesn’t win, congratulations to the guy who is going to win,”
