Jurgen Klopp reckons that “world-class” Mohamed Salah is a natural goalscorer who has the selfishness to win a third Premier League Golden Boot this season.

Despite Liverpool struggling this quarter as their title defense has fallen since the start of the year, Salah has remained among the goals, with the 28-year-old behind Harry Kane in the goalscoring following the double in the Tottenham striker at Everton on Friday. night.

Salah is continuing his third Premier League Golden Boot in the past four seasons – something his manager, speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Liverpool’s clash with Leeds on Monday Football Night – sets him apart.

Asked if the Golden Boot pursuit is any additional motivation this season for Salah, Klopp replied, “Yes, of course.

Monday April 19 7:00 p.m.

Kick-off at 8:00 p.m.

“A football player is 15, maybe 17 or 18 in some cases, in his career. This is a time in your life when you are at your best and want to get the best out of your career.

“Most players never win the Golden Shoe. If you win it once, that’s a great achievement. If you win it twice that’s a really big achievement, if you can win it a third time there aren’t many successful players. won it three times.

“The attackers have to be selfish. I have never met a disinterested striker. You can be the nicest person in the world but in the end you want to score goals and that means you don’t see the players in the same shirts.

“The [Salah] is just a natural goalscorer, he wants to score goals. This is something he developed later in his career. This is what world-class players do [score season after season]. Knowing your own quality helps you get back on track faster than others. “

Liverpool have won three consecutive league games for the second time this season – also their first three of the campaign in September – coming from behind to beat Aston Villa last time around.

Such an improvement rekindled their hopes of placing in the top four. The race for the top four looks set to end, but Klopp isn’t looking for other people’s favor to secure Champions League football for next season.

“How I found out early on is that you have to sort it out yourself,” Klopp said. “You have to win your own games and not sit in front of the TV and hope for results from other teams.

“If we win our games, I think we will. Otherwise, we’ll have to see.

“We have been playing good football recently, but we need consistency in terms of performance and results too. You can see how difficult the challenge is. Leeds is a tough place to go, everyone knows how Leeds play with the greatest intensity. We have to be ready for this stuff.

“The majority of the season is still there to build the basis for the playoff. The base that we created is not as good as the other years, but good enough to still be there.

“It’s not a problem, it should be difficult to qualify for the Champions League. “
