Egyptian star Mohamed Salah has described the ‘unbelievable feeling’ of helping Liverpool end a 30-year wait to be crowned domestic champions after clinching the Premier League title.
Salah was instrumental as the Reds secured their 19th crown – a first since 1990 – last Thursday evening, adding to the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup trophies all claimed in 2019.
Speaking exclusively to Liverpool’s official website, Salah – whose 21 goals so far this term have him positioned at the top of the club’s scorers charts as he chases a third successive Golden Boot – explained his emotions at achieving the feat.
“It’s an unbelievable feeling to win a trophy like that,” he said. “To win the Premier League after long years for the club and the city, it’s unbelievable.
“I can’t describe with words, it’s so hard to say that [how it feels]. When I came here, I said I wanted to win the Premier League – it’s my first thing in my head, I want to win the Premier League and the Champions League. People said, ‘If you could choose one…?’ But now I can say that I’d choose both!
“The Premier League, I can say now after we won it, for the city it is something else. Everybody is crazy about the result, everybody is crazy about the Premier League.
“It is an unbelievable feeling for everybody, for all the fans around the world. Without their support, we could not do it. They did a great job, the players also did the same. It is a great feeling, I cannot explain it with words.”
Salah this season became the first Liverpool player to net 20 goals or more for three campaigns running since Robbie Fowler in the 1990s.
His overall tally for the Reds stands at a staggering 92 strikes in a total of just 145 appearances.
“It’s great to score goals to help the team to win games,” added Salah. “So I feel like I am happy here, I am doing good and everything is also working well with the team and we’ve won trophies.
“Everything is good and I am enjoying it.”
Salah reserved a special message dedicated to Liverpool supporters, outlining the role they themselves played in helping bring the title back to Anfield.
“We did everything we could to make them happy, but without their support we could not do it,” he said.
“For sure they did a great job at Anfield and always at away games. I am very happy – Liverpool, this is for you!”
