“There’s only one man for me, I have to be honest, he’s been decisive. He has the most goals and the most assists in the league, you can’t go against that. It’s Mo Salah. He’s been ridiculous."
"You can see fear in defenders when he’s on the pitch, he does every part of the game really well. His finishing, he does all types of finishes. You just look at the goals and assists, that is enough to say he’s the most decisive player in this league.”

Mohamed Salah continues to make things happen for Liverpool

When Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah from AS Roma back in 2017, no one would have believed that he would become one of the best players in the world at Anfield.

However, the Egyptian King made an impact at the Merseyside club and has not looked back since. Salah continues to remain Jurgen Klopp's most trusted weapon up front and a nightmare for opposition defenders.

Mohamed Salah is tempted by the idea of a transfer to PSG, according to The Telegraph 👀

So far in his Liverpool career, the forward has scored a total of 155 goals while producing 61 assists in 248 games.

Jurgen Klopp has a major headache to resolve with Salah's contract up for expiry in the summer of 2023. The Egyptian's future still seems to be up in the air and it's not looking promising for the club as one of their best players is about to enter the final year of his deal.
