In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports, Salah said: “As you can see last couple of games, the players are trying to help me a lot now to score goals, because they know now I am in for the Golden Boot. In the end it is an individual award, but it also helps the team gets the points.
Mohamed Salah is the Egyptian professional footballer, who has set the premier league on fire this season. He plays for English football club Liverpool and the Egyptian national team. And will be looking to the world cup campaign in Russian this year.
Salah has been a revelation since arriving from Roma for £34.3m in the summer. He has now scored 40 goals for Liverpool this season the most since Ian Rush.
And he explained that although his focus is for the teams success, he and his teammates are all focused on getting him the golden boot.
“But before, when I was second to Kane, I had a chance to score, I gave it to Bobby [Roberto Firmino] and he scored, I play football for football not just to think about myself. I give assists, I create chances, because I can’t forget my position. I play still on the wing, not No 9. I play for the team and everyone can see that.
For Salah, the record is in sight. The 42-game record of 34 goals, held by Andrew Cole (93/94) and Alan Shearer (94/95) could also be ticked off the list, and the Liverpool star is full of confidence.
He is one goal away from equalling a 38-game Premier League record held by Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Luis Suarez.
Liverpool play against West Brom on Saturday and then turn their attentions to their midweek champions league semi final tie against Roma.
