When Mohamed Salah joined Liverpool at the beginning of the 2017/18 season, it was met with confusion by both fans and pundits, with both trying to work out how this player would help elevate Liverpool's team to strive for greater heights.
What followed, however, is nothing short of miraculous with Salah taking the football world by storm. Although Liverpool was ultimately unable to win a trophy in the 2017/18 season, Mohamed Salah catapulted himself to football stardom and into the upper echelon of attackers in European football. By the end of the season, records had been broken and created.
Being from Egypt, Salah ignited a euphoric frenzy across his home nation in support of this talented individual. While world-class talent is almost saturated in Europe and South America, Egypt hasn't had a player of this caliber and fame before, and this element of Salah's incredible season made it even sweeter.
As well as cementing himself as one of the most talented attackers in the Premier League, Salah broke and set numerous records throughout last season, and this article is going to look at 5 of the records he broke.
#5. Scoring 32 league goals in a single Premier League season
In 2017/18, Salah did something that players such Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Luis Suarez, and Harry Kane could not: He scored 32 league goals in a single season.
Whilst the previous best was 31 goals, Salah managed to squeeze his way to this record by scoring 1 more in the 2017/18 season. This is perhaps his best record in terms of how historic it was and considering what Premier League legends he bettered by achieving it.
