Mohamed Salah (12 goals in 11 matches), so dear to Liverpool

2021-10-20T13:29:19.192Z

Nothing and nobody seems to be able to stop Mohamed Salah: again author of a double Tuesday against Atlético Madrid (3-2) to bring Liverpool closer to a qualification for the eighth of the Champions League, the Egyptian seems irresistible with the Reds , forced into negotiations ...



Author of 12 goals and 4 assists in 11 matches in all competitions this season, the twirling 29-year-old striker seems to have never been so strong and his coach does not hesitate to see him as the best player in the world.

He's at the top.

We all see it.

Who is better than him?

», Asked his coach Jürgen Klopp at the microphone of BT Sports after the victory (5-0) at Watford on Saturday, marked by a splendid assist from Salah from outside the right and a goal after a solo act .

We don't need to recall everything Messi and Ronaldo have done for world football and their domination.

But at the moment, he is the best,

”insisted the German coach.

To discover

  • Premier League fixtures and results

  • Premier League standings

Against Atlético, a club with whom Liverpool had a score to settle after elimination in the round of 16 in 2020 (0-1, 2-3 ap), Salah opened the scoring with a deflected strike (1-0 , 8th) before transforming the penalty to the win (3-2, 78th), after a match with twists and high tension.

Honestly, how you win doesn't interest me at all! The dirtiest (wins) are the most important! On a night like that, taking three points is absolutely huge,

”said Klopp. With 9 points in three matches and 4 lengths ahead of Madrid and Porto, the Reds are off to a good start to see Europe in the spring and the group that seemed so delicate, with AC Milan as the fourth thief, almost turned. at the health walk.

In the league too, Liverpool got off to a good start. Unbeaten in 8 days, with the best attack (22 goals), he follows the leader Chelsea to a length. Unbeaten in their last 21 matches in all competitions, the Reds have scored 30 goals in their last 9 meetings and have scored at least three goals in their last seven trips. And at their head, Salah also panics the counters. On Saturday he joined Didier Drogba at the top of the Premier League's most prolific African players with 104 goals.

On Tuesday, with his two goals, he not only erased Steven Gerrard from the number of goals scored for Liverpool in the Champions League with 31 units in 48 games, but he also became the first Red in history to shake the nets in 9 straight matches. Last year, already, in a season plagued by a cascade of injuries in defense and which had seen Liverpool snatch his ticket for the C1 narrowly, he had perhaps been the only one to justify his status with 31 goals and 6 assists decisive in all competitions.

So many arguments that will not make the task of Liverpool negotiators easy when it will be necessary to sit around a table to try to extend his contract which ends in 2023. The English press speaks of an XXL revaluation to 500,000 pounds (590,000 euros) per week, or about 25 M GBP (29.5 M EUR) per year, more than double what he has received since 2018. A number that can turn heads, but his goals are so profitable to Liverpool that the Mersey club could well allow this madness.
