Mohamed Salah says he is very happy to have taken the Champions League goal scoring record at Liverpool. The Egyptian forward scored his 22nd goal in the competition for the Reds, surpassing the record of Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. Salah’s goal was also Liverpool’s quickest goal ever in the European tournament as the forward scored a goal after just 55 seconds.
Talking to reporters after the game Salah expressed his delight at breaking the record. “It’s a great feeling to be the top scorer for the club, it’s something I’m proud of,” said the 28-year-old. “I need to keep going with that, score more goals, make the gap bigger between me and the others! I’m trying all the time to score goals to help the team to win games.”
Despite an early goal against FC Midtjylland, the Danish champions managed to hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw. “One of the most important goals. They played good, almost man-marked us. We scored the goal early, but they strike back, they played a good game. The most important thing is to qualify, it’s a game to learn [from].”
