Salah can be more than a goal machine

Sports | Apr 16, 2018
Jurgen Klopp believes Mohamed Salah is not done with his goalscoring feats after the Egyptian took his tally for the season to 40 in Liverpool's 3-0 victory over Bournemouth.

But the manager insists Salah's quest to end the season as the league's leading scorer won't hinder Liverpool in their bid to win the Champions League.

Salah became the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush in 1986-87 to reach the 40-goal mark. With potentially seven games remaining for Liverpool, he may yet challenge the all-time club record of 47, set by Rush in the 1983-84 campaign. "It's good, impressive. What a number," said Klopp, adding that his side can still improve in attack by not always looking for Salah. "He's the threat but ... we have to mix it up. A lot of times we are in a position shooting and they cannot always give the ball to him. So we can use his threat and pass the ball somewhere else."
