Salah eyes Champions League tittle


Liverpool Winger, Mohamed Salah has expressed his desire openly saying a Champions League win would mean more to him than any honours he may have received this season.

Salah is currently topping the goal ranking table in the Premier League and has made it five goals clear above those running the race for the Golden Boot when he scored his 30th of the season against Bournemouth on Saturday.

Albeit, he has also been included on the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year shortlist, having enjoyed an amazing debut campaign with Liverpool side

However, the 25-year-old forward has admitted that his priority is the Champions League campaign - and the upcoming semi-final against his former club Roma.

When asked whether he would prefer to win the Champions League or an individual honour, Salah said: "If you had a choice, then of course the Champions League.

"I have no doubt - the Champions League.

"To win the Champions League is huge for everyone. I don't care about the rest."

Salah's golden boot challenge with Harry Kane took a twist last week when Kane was successful with his claim that Christian Eriksen's second goal against Stoke should actually be awarded to him, as it brushed his shoulder.

Salah also was asked about the decision, Salah laughed and said: "I don't want to say anything about that!

"In the end they said it's his goal, so it's finished for me.

"Now we still have four games and they have five games so I have to think about my games and we see.

"I cannot lie - it is in my mind.

"But you can see with the team, everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me.

"I am also sure that Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City players try to help Sergio Aguero. It's like that but, in the end, we play as a team."
