Salah urges Liverpool to stay humble
The Egyptian Pharaoh scored his 128th and 129th goal for Liverpool in the Premier League, breaking Robbie Fowler’s record of 128. The record-breaking performance couldn’t have come on a better night as they dispatched United with ease.
Salah told Sky Sports: “It’s very special, I can’t lie. This record was in my mind since I first came here.
“In my first season, in my mind, I was always chasing the record so, to make it today against United with that result was unbelievable.
“I’m going home to celebrate with the family, chamomile tea and sleep.”
“It’s very special to win the game like that but at the same time, we don’t want to go into the next game with overconfidence”
Despite the thumping win and him breaking a record, Salah insisted that they remain humble as they have a long way to go if they want to get back into top four.
“It’s very special to win the game like that but at the same time, we don’t want to go into the next game with overconfidence,” he added.
“We just need to be humble, just play and win games. We’re not in the position that we want to be, but hopefully this gives us a good push and we can keep winning.”
That sentiment was echoed by captain Jordan Henderson, who also hailed Salah for his dedication.
“It’s a fantastic day for everyone. The performance levels, every player was top quality. You could see the energy levels were back,” he said.
“We have shown recently we are on the path back. It’s a big win but we need to concentrate on the next game.
“I’m really happy for Mo. He dedicates his life to football. He is the first one in and the first one out.”
