Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has said that helping the team to success is more important to him than personal glory.
Much has been made of the race to be the Premier League golden boot winner this season after Spurs striker Harry Kane was controversially awarded a goal scored by team-mate Christian Eriksen.
The England international did not manage to find the net at the weekend after seeing Salah net against Bournemouth to increase his lead to five goals.
And the Egypt international has revealed that goals are important to him, but that he would rather help the team.
“It is in my mind.” he is quoted by The Guardian.
“I cannot lie, it is in my mind. But you can see against Bournemouth that everyone in the team tries to pass the ball to me to help me.
“I am happy to have this feeling, you feel all the team want to support you and want to help you score goals.
“I am also sure that Tottenham’s players try to help Harry Kane and also Manchester City’s try to help Sergio Aguero.
“It’s like that but in the end we play as a team.” he continued.
Salah is just seven goals away from matching Ian Rush’s all-time record of forty-seven goals in a single season for the club and has admitted that he would like to match the Welshman.
“It is very close, just seven goals. But let’s see!
“I don’t know how many games there is to go but we have the Premier League and semi-finals of the Champions League to play.
“I will try my best to score again and help the team.” he finished.
