Salah sends a message to critics
Mohamed Salah has vowed to continue to ignore the moans, writes Ian Doyle.
Salah is expected to be in contention for Wednesday’s visit to Atalanta’s Champions League after missing the weekend’s win over Leicester City after testing positive for coronavirus.
The Egyptian will be hoping to continue his goal form after scoring 10 goals in 13 games – his best start to the season for Liverpool.
Eight came to the Premier League with Salah at the start of the Golden Boot Award race which he won in 2018 and shared 12 months later.
And when asked about his hopes for a personal hat-trick, the Reds striker had a message for his critics.
“I think it’s hard to do it the first time, but it’s harder to do it the second time and even harder to do it the third time.
“Some will always complain. They will say “he’s good at it but he’s not good at it”.
“You just need to go on and get your things done and I’m very proud to be doing it.
“Goals, assists… I feel good about it and even if it’s a little more difficult, it’s our job and we have to get there and perform.
“It was important to win these individual awards, but I always say the Premier League, Champions League and team trophies come first.
“The ambition for me is to win both. We won the Champions League alone and then the Premier League last season. My ambition is to win both (in the same season). “
