Salah would trade Golden Boot for Euro glory


Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah says he would trade the Golden Boot for a Champions League winners' medal.

Salah has netted 30 Premier League goals this season, five more than Tottenham's Harry Kane, in the race for the Golden Boot.

But the Egypt international says he is more focused on team glory than individual baubles, ahead of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final ties against AS Roma, which will be shown live on BT Sport on the eir Sport pack.

"If you had a choice between the Champions League and [being the Premier League top scorer] then of course the Champions League," he said.

"To win the Champions League is: 'whissssshhhh'... I can't say 'woahhh'.

"I have no doubt the Champions League. To win the Champions League is huge for everyone. I don't care about the rest."

Salah became the first African to score 30 Premier League goals with his strike in Saturday's 3-0 win over Bournemouth at Anfield, and the 25-year-old says his Liverpool team-mates are doing their best to help him win the Golden Boot.

"Of course, I cannot lie – it is in my mind," he said. 

"But you know, you can see today with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me.

"I am also sure that Tottenham's players try to help Harry Kane, and also Manchester City's try to help Sergio Aguero

"It's like that, but in the end, we play as a team."

Salah needs another eight goals to pass Ian Rush's club record of 47 in a season, set in 1983-84 when Liverpool won both the league title and the European Cup. 

Liverpool have four more games to play in the Premier League this season, and a possible three more matches in Europe.

"It's also very close, it's just seven goals but let's see," he added.

"I don't know how many games there is to go, but we have the Premier League and semi-finals of the Champions League to play.

"I will try my best to score again and help the team."

Liverpool's Champions League semi-final first leg against AS Roma at Anfield on Tuesday, April 24 will be shown live on BT Sport on the eir Sport pack [kick off 7.45pm].
