Mo Salah: Give me team glory over personal accolades any day

Mo Salah: Give me team glory over personal accolades any day

Salah has scored 40 goals for Liverpool this season.

While many thought Jurgen Klopp would ring the changes for this game, prioritising the first leg of the Champions League semi final against AS Roma in just over a week's time, the German clearly wants to preserve the momentum of the side heading into that game.

But Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes the current European Golden Shoe leader Mohamed Salah has the ability to challenge the status quo and become only the second African to win the title after George Weah did it with AC Milan in 1995.

"It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team", the Egypt worldwide told reporters.

"I am happy to have this feeling. But you can see against Bournemouth that everyone in the team tries to pass the ball to me to help me", said the 25-year-old.

'We could see how strong he was mentally with the way he handled himself when he didn't play at Chelsea'. You feel they want to support you and want to help you to score goals. It's also very close, it's just seven goals.

"In the end they said it's his (Kane's) goal so it's finished for me".

"He does all the right things, he trains hard, he works hard, he listens to the coaches - that's why, as good as he is playing at the moment, I think maybe there is even one more level in him".

Could Liverpool lose Mohamed Salah to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window?

Asked whether he would prefer to win the Champions League or an individual honour like the golden boot, Salah replied: "If you had a choice between the Champions League and (individual honours like the golden boot) then of course the Champions League".

Although Salah stated he would rather win the Champions League, he still has his eyes on winning both accolades, with Salah admitting that winning the Golden Boot is still on his mind. "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season".
