Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp reserved high praises for Mohamed Salah recently and claimed that the Egyptian puts his personal interests aside for the club.

Salah has been one of Liverpool’s most prolific players in the Premier League era and has continued to prove his worth in the 2023/24 campaign.

In 21 games this season, the African star managed to score 13 goals, while contributing seven assists along the way. According to Klopp however, statistics does not matter to Salah, who looks out for the interest of the club.

“Mo’s a sensationally thoughtful person and he’s a really smart man,” Klopp told TNT Sports, as per Euro Sport.

“When we’re together in the leadership group, his impact is massive and he sees all the aspects of the game and the team and it’s a real joy to have him there to be honest.

“We see the winger or striker who created his own position and doing incredible numbers and you could think that he’s just interested in his numbers but not at all. He’s really interested in the processes – how to become the best possible team we can be.

“He knows that only that will make us successful, so pure joy. We’ve known each other for long but we both learn a few aspects from each other and I know how lucky I am to have these boys around and especially Mo because you could be as good a manager as you want but if the players don’t have the quality and the character, it’s mission impossible.”
