‘Fans Will Remember Salah Stunner After 60 Years’

Klopp and Salah

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool fans will remember Mohamed Salah’s goal in the 2-2 draw with Manchester City in 60 years’ time.

He said, “If Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi scores that goal they say it is world class. Mo Salah scores that goal because he is world class.”

It is hard for words alone to do justice to just how good Salah’s goal was in Sunday’s match between Liverpool and Manchester City, though Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp did his best.

Receiving the ball on the right side of the box and surrounded by three players, a clever roll and flick on to his other boot put Bernardo Silva on the floor before Salah shimmied past Aymeric Laporte and then fired a superb strike out of Ederson’s reach and in off the far post.

“Only the best players in the world score goals like this,” added Klopp.

“The first touch, the first challenge he wins then putting it on his right foot, and finishing the situation was absolutely exceptional.

“This club never forget these things so people will talk about this goal for a long time – in 50 or 60 years’ time they will remember this goal.”

Mo Salah has scored in his past seven games in all competitions and in eight of his nine games this season.

Salah is up to nine goals for the season in all competitions. He has scored in each of his past seven appearances, equalling his longest scoring streak for the Reds. In fact, he has scored in all but one game he has played in this season.
