It’s great to share the Golden Boot with Sadio Mane, says Mohamed Salah
Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has revealed his frustration at losing the Premier League title, but is delighted to retain the Golden Boot award.
The Egypt international played the full 90 minutes as Liverpool beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 in the final round of the English Premier League.
The victory wasn’t enough for Liverpool to win the Premier League title as they needed Brighton to force Manchester City to drop points, which didn’t happen as the Citizens won 4-1.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the victory, the Egyptian said: “We did everything this season, we only lost one game. We got 97 points.
“I say congratulations to Manchester City and we will fight again next season for this trophy,” he added.
Despite failing to score against the Wolves, Salah retained the Golden Boot award for the second successive year, sharing the award with his teammate Sadio Mane and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who also finished on 22 goals.
“I don’t know what to say. We had a great season,” Salah told beIN SPORTS.
“We earned a huge number of points and lost only one game, but we have to forget all of that and think about the next season in order to win the title.
“It’s great to share the Golden Boot with Sadio Mane. Winning the award for the second time is an incredible feeling,” he concluded.
Salah has become the only third African player to win the Golden Boot in back-to-back seasons in Europe’s top five leagues alongside Tony Yeboah with Frankfurt in 1993 and 1994 and Barcelona legend Samuel Eto’o, who won it with the Catalan giants in 2005 and 2006.
The Egyptian and his side will now shift their focus on the UEFA Champions League final, where they will face Tottenham Hotspur at Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.
