SALAH: I still want that feeling I had in Liverpool after Winning The Champions League
Straight from the horse’s mouth, you heard it; Salah still wants Champions League glory with Liverpool.
Liverpool’s forward, Mohamed Salah, has been in the spotlight for some time now; either breaking every available records, or causing some media squabble regarding his contract talks with the heads of the club. But this time, Salah comes out to stress he isn’t done fighting for the club yet, atleast not when he stands a chance to re-live that moment of a Champions League winners medal round his neck and the trophy parade round Liverpool in the aftermath.
Speaking in the club’s official match day programme, the Egyptian talisman, posits in quote: “I want to have the feeling again that we had after winning the Champions League. It was unbelievable and in my mind that’s why I want to win it again with Liverpool,” he said.
Flashing back to said moment, it very much can be seen what that day on the trophy parade meant to the players in general and Salah in particular, as a mammoth crowd stood in wait for the club’s maiden trophy in 7 years, after having missed glory earlier in the season prior. A season Salah would very well not want to remember for reasons personal.
But the aftermath is one Salah would want to see happen again with his hopes on big old ears should Liverpool progress into the Champions League final ahead of their Semi Final opponents, Villarreal. And it can be debated that the aftermath was one of the key catalyst to an eventual Premier League title success by the Reds in the 2019/20 season after an elusive 30 years away from it.
Salah, though hasn’t been in top form like he had been earlier in the season, but mistakes shouldn’t be made to write off his stellar numbers this season in both goal and assist ratio, recording 30 goals overall and 13 assists; one ahead of teammate Trent Alexander Arnold.
It remains to be seen if Salah can live up to his dreams of a Champions League glory this term or even go better and help Liverpool achieve its quadruple ambitions. Time certainly will tell as Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool Manager always maintained, “We take it game by game and see what happens,”
