Ambition: I want to be the best Egyptian ever - Salah

Mohamed Salah

Liverpool star, Mohamed Salah has revealed that his goal is to become the best Egyptian footballer ever.

His fine form has translated to worldwide level where it was his last-gasp penalty against the DR Congo that booked Egypt's place at next summer's World Cup and he's rightfully been named the BBC African Player of the Year.

The winger has 13 Premier League goals this season, making him the leading scorer in England's top flight.

He told Liverpoolfc.com, "I'm very happy to win it again, but at the end, it's an individual award, and, for me, we need to win games and we need to get the points; that's the most important thing".

Among the other contenders were his team-mate Sadio Mane, Chelsea's Victor Moses, Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Red Bull Leipzig's Naby Keita.

With both Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo struggling for goals in the league, the addition of Salah would certainly elevate Zinedine Zidane's squad to another level.


"I have to thank everyone, my team-mates, the people I work with".

"It was a good month for me". I had a very good start with the team, and also the manager [Jurgen Klopp].

2017 really has been the year of Mohamed Salah.

While Salah has made a name for himself at Liverpool since his summer move from Roma, his biggest achievement to date came for his country.

"I have always followed my way, and I want everyone in Egypt to follow my way".
