Liverpool's Mohamed Salah has said he is now looking forward to reaching 100 goals with the Reds after reaching his 50-goal milestone in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in October.
The Egyptian star forward achieved 50 goals in 65 appearances, which is the fewest number of games in which a player was able to reach a half-century of goals in the history of Liverpool Football Club.
“Being the fastest player to score 50 goals for the club is something great. But I need to carry on and score more goals – I’m looking forward to 100,” Salah told BBC Sport.
The BBC announced 17 November its five-man shortlist for the 2018 BBC African Footballer of the Year. Salah was included on the list of the award, which he won a year ago, alongside teammate Sadio Mane (Senegal), Medhi Benatia (Morocco), Kalidou Koulibaly (Senegal) and Thomas Partey (Ghana).
Salah added that winning titles with Liverpool is very important to him. “Last season we were very close, but in the end we didn’t win anything. That’s something that motivates me much more than individual awards. I want to win something for the club, because I love the club. I want to win something here,” he concluded.
