Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp complimented his winger Mohamed Salah at a press conference ahead of his side’s match against Burnley at Anfield on Sunday.

“He has an unbelievable record, that’s all. His goals brought us where we are - not only [his goals], but a big part of it,” the-51-year-old coach told the press.

Salah has scored 17 times this season in the race to the Premier League Golden Boot, which he won last season, leaving him one goal behind Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero.

“We have very often talks and everything and of course when you are a striker or offensive player and you have chances in a game, you want to score with them, that’s clear,” Klopp added.

“But as a manager I’m more than used to that, that players don’t score all the time, so that’s how it is,” he concluded.

The Merseysiders are eyeing their first title since 1990 as they currently sit second in the Premier League standings, only one point behind title-holders Manchester City.
