Can Salah Continue to Excel for Liverpool?
Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp believes Salah’s best years are still to come. In Salah’s case, accomplishing so much in the past five seasons only motivates him to keep going. The 30-year-old Egyptian forward is in Liverpool’s top 10 all-time scorers list and has the chance to break Steven Gerrard‘s record. With Liverpool coming up short in the recent Champions League final, Salah and Liverpool would be determined to redeem themselves from that painful moment.
Salah’s skills and playing ability are one thing, but his love and passion for the game are the key factors in his success. His motivation and leadership only add to his reasons for being able to have a brilliant and illustrious career. He has every quality Liverpool could ask for, so the club can’t afford to lose him.
Salah not only has a golden opportunity to help Liverpool win more trophies, but he can also further solidify himself. Not only as a legend for Liverpool and soccer overall, but as one of the greatest athletes in history. There’s no doubt Salah will continue to achieve major success in the sport.
