Here are some interesting records held by Mohamed Salah
Egyptian superstar Mohamed Salah has been on a roll ever since he has signed for Premier League giants Liverpool. Since 2017, he has made a tremendous impact for the club and has already won a Champions League title. Having scored 74 goals in 109 matches to date for the club, he has scripted a number of records as we take a look at some.
Salah was on a goal-scoring spree ever since he joined the club. His intent was evident from the opening season (2017-18) and proved his worth when he finished the campaign as the highest goal-scorer in a single 38-game season. He scored 32 goals in 36 appearances and as a result, he bagged the Premier League Player of the Season award.
His enormous success in the opening season was not just limited to the EPL but continued in the European platform as well. As Liverpool finished runners-up during the season, Salah managed to score 11 goals in the competition in 2017-18. In the process, he became the highest-scoring African in a single season of the tournament, going past Samuel Eto'o's record of eight.
The opening season saw a relentless approach from Salah, as his consistent goal-scoring spree saw him create a club record. Across competitions during the 2017-18 season, Salah managed to score 44 goals in 52 appearances. Consequently, he became Liverpool's top goal-scorer in the debut season, going past Fernando Torres's record of 33 from 46, 10 seasons earlier.
Salah's success is not just limited to England, but it had all started in Italy. Playing for Roma and Fiorentina, Salah made a great name for himself, before he was identified by Liverpool as their potential target. He scored a total of 35 goals in 81 appearances and thus became the highest-scoring Egyptian in the Serie A to date.
Not just scoring goals, but Salah is also good at assisting and is a complete team player. His record assists came in Italy where he had provided 15 assists during the 2016-17, across competitions, playing for AS Roma, asides scoring 19 goals in 41 matches.
