Mohamed Salah has been firing from all corners this season and Liverpool’s ascension into the top four has been largely due to his superb form in front of goal.
He has netted 28 goals in all competitions already for the Reds this season and became the 4th fastest player to score 20 Premier League goals when he netted in Liverpool’s 2-2 draw against Tottenham last week.
After failing to light up the Premier League in his first stint at Chelsea, many expected the Egyptian to flop at Liverpool again. However, without being “arrogant” the Egyptian has claimed that he always expected to be a success when he decided to join the Reds.
The £36 million Liverpool shelled out to get his signature was then a club record and it raised a lot of eyebrows. However, his return of 28 goals in all competitions has left even his critics stunned.
The talented 25 years while speaking to Four Four Two claimed:
“I don’t want to seem arrogant. But yeah, I expected it [scoring a lot of goals].
“When I was in Rome, I was comfortable there. I had two good seasons there. I was happy.
“I always try to take another chance. I always put myself under pressure.
“I didn’t play for Chelsea when I was here three years ago. I came back here to show my football. I think I’m doing well.”
The Egyptian’s performances has seen his name come up as a contender for the Ballon d’Or in the nearest future.
