Liverpool Forward Mo Salah Makes Champions League Admission To Fans
Mo Salah is willing to put the Liverpool fans first this season as the club chase that elusive Premier League title, as well as competing in the Champions League. Last season ended with Salah going off injured in the final of the tournament due to a tussle with Sergio Ramos, with Real Madrid going on to lift their third consecutive title under returning manager Zinedine Zidane.
The Egyptian has spoken honestly about his personal priorities but is willing to put those aside for the fans. He said, via quotes in The Mirror:
"I will be honest with you, the most prestigious competition for me is the Champions League.
“But the dream for the entire city and the club is the league.
"So, I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but if we win both that would great and this is what we are trying to do."
Liverpool travel to Germany on Wednesday night to take on Bayern Munich in the second leg of their Champions League tie. The scores are level at 0-0 and the Reds know an early away goal would put them in a strong position to qualify.
Salah was keen to continue talking about the Premier League however, where Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side lie one point ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s men. Although the title is in City’s hands, Salah remains full of belief heading into the final games.
"All you can do is win your games and hopefully they will fail in one so we can win the title.
"My mind is sharp and there is pressure but I am strong mentally and we just have to keep going.
"We will see what we can do at the end of the season but mentally I am ready for everything."
