Salah targets more Champions League glory in bid to recreate ´unbelievable´ celebrations

Mohamed Salah has set his sights on further Champions League and domestic success with Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s side face Villarreal in the first leg of their semi-final encounter on Wednesday, just under three years on from their last triumph in the tournament. The Champions League is one of three trophies that Liverpool are still in the hunt for this season, having already won the EFL Cup.

Salah helped Liverpool to victory in an all-English affair against Tottenham on that occasion in 2019, and says he wants to recapture those highs with a second European crown.

“I want to have the feeling again that we had after winning the Champions League,” he told the club’s matchday programme ahead of the game.

“It was unbelievable and in my mind that’s why I want to win it again with Liverpool. The feeling we had in the city when we went on the bus and toured was unbelievable. 

“The Premier League was kind of different because it was not done [due to COVID-19 restrictions], but I want to win the Champions League again and I want to win the Premier League again. 

“That is my target with the team right now.”

Salah has enjoyed another prolific campaign at Anfield, and is the leading scorer in the Premier League this season with 22 goals to his name, five ahead of his nearest rival Son Heung-min of Tottenham.

But the forward feels he has more to give than what he has delivered, adding: “I saw my game improving, but the season before last I had 19 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League.

“In my first season it was also 10 assists, so I’m always trying to score goals and give assists. 

“That is always my game and this season I feel a lot of improvement with the ball, but I go back to what I said before. The most important thing is to help this team win trophies and I am trying to help to do that.”
