Liverpool Egyptian star Mohamed Salah admitted that he’s not complaining from his team’s breakdown, adding that they need to work hard and trust themselves.
The 28-year-old winger gave the Reds the lead in Tuesday’s 2-0 victory against RB Leipzig in the first leg match of the Champions League round of 16, as he scored the first goal while the Senegalese star Sadio Mane added the second goal.
“We played well against Leipzig, which was a tough opponent. We have to keep up the good work because the second leg game won’t be easy despite it’s at our home, and I wish to qualify to the next stage,” Salah told BeIn Sports after the game.
Liverpool’s run isn’t going well in the current Premier League season as they have lost all the games they have played in February, dropping against Brighton, Manchester City, and Leicester City 1-0, 4-1, 3-1 respectively.
“Last game against Leicester City, we played pretty well until the 75th minute, but in football you have to play 90 minutes.”
“I’m not complaining but we need to trust ourselves,” he explained.
Despite the hard time that Liverpool is experiencing, Salah is leading the Premier League’s top scorers table with a total of 17 goals on the board, six goals away from his closest competitor. Salah is aspiring to clinch his third golden boot.
