I don´t care about the rest - Salah eyes Champions League

Mo Salah becomes first player since Cristiano Ronaldo to match Premier League goalscoring feat

The Egyptian has enjoyed a sensational debut season on Merseyside and struck his 30th Premier League goal in the Reds' 3-0 win over Bournemouth at the weekend.

"I know many people will disagree with this, but in my opinion, Mohamed Salah is the best player in the history of Egyptian football", the former Tottenham and Middlesbrough forward added.

"I'm putting on the tin hat before suggesting this but Mo Salah surely deserves to be in the running for the Ballon d'Or", Fowler explained in his column for the Mirror.

Pre-match tributes were held on the eve of the 29th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster, before Liverpool began on the front foot and Salah toed Trent Alexander-Arnold's pass from deep just wide of the right-hand post.

Completing the top 10, Luis Suarez matched Cristiano Ronaldo's tally after scoring his 23rd goal of the campaign.

Do you think Salah can beat Messi to the European Golden Shoe this season?

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". Jurgen Klopp's men need to win just two out of their remaining four games in order to secure their Champions League qualification. I don't care about the rest. "You have to be insane to sell a player like that, or you need a lot of money".

Salah has endeared himself to Liverpool fans with his performances on the pitch and his attitude off it, and this will have undoubtedly made him even more popular.

The No.11 admits he is hunting both achievements but would gladly cast aside those ambitions in favour of Liverpool claiming Champions League glory next month.

"Of course (the golden boot) is in my mind".

Asked about his desire to be the Premier League's top goal scorer, Salah said: "I can not lie, it is in my mind".
