Mohamed Salah talks about Golden Boot, Harry Kane
The Egyptian goalscorer is in contention along with the Spurs’ talisman, Harry Kane, for the Golden Boot award of most goals scored in the league and with Lionel Messi on the European front.
“As you can see last couple of games, the players are trying to help me a lot now to score goals, because they know now I am in for the Golden Boot. In the end it is an individual award, but it also helps the team get the points.
“The way we play is very good, and you can see the fans are very happy and I feel very good about that, I feel they want me to win something.
“It’s the last four games, so it’s very clear, I play for it. In the beginning I played for it, but it’s always for the team. I want to score for the team.
Salah is four goals ahead of Kane with 30 goals to his name and four Premier League games to go in the season. The team is set to visit West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.
“But before, when I was second to Kane, I had a chance to score, I gave it to Bobby [Roberto Firmino] and he scored, I play football for football not just to think about myself. I give assists, I create chances, because I can’t forget my position. I play still on the wing, not No 9. I play for the team and everyone can see that.
“Honestly as you can see, I have had a great season and still some games to go. For anyone the most important thing is to play good, to perform good, to score goals for your team. I am happy in the city, for the club and for myself for sure. It means a lot.”
