Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah has expressed his delight after claiming the honour of Liverpool FC’s all-time top goalscorer in the Uefa Champions League.
The speedy winger scored for the Reds as they drew 1-1 with Danish side FC Midtjylland in a Group D match at the MCH Arena on Wednesday.
It was Salah’s 22nd goal for the English giants in the Champions League, overtaking the club’s legendary midfielder Steven Gerrard’s previous record of 21.
Salah, who joined the Reds from Italian side AS Roma in July 2017, is determined to continue adding to his tally.
“It’s a great feeling, of course, to be the top scorer for the club [in the Champions League], something I’m proud of,” Salah told BT Sport as quoted by the club’s official website.
“I need to keep going like that and scoring more goals and make the gap maybe bigger between me and the others.
“But I’m trying all the time to score goals just to help the team to win games – that’s the most important thing.”
Salah’s early goal in Denmark was also Liverpool’s fastest ever goal in the Champions League, coming after just 55 seconds. The 28-year-old has netted 12 goals from 18 matches across all competitions this season.
