Micah Richards makes Liverpool dressing room claim after Mo Salah scores landmark goal for the club

Where would Liverpool be without Mohamed Salah? Not within touching distance of the Champions League places, that's for certain.

Salah has been one of the few positives for Liverpool in a disappointing season that will end without silverware and possibly a top-four finish.

The Egyptian 'one-season wonder' has now scored 30 goals in all competitions after bagging the winner in Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Brentford on Saturday – which moved them to within one point of fourth-place Manchester United.

Salah has now scored 11 goals in his last 12 league games, including a goal in each of his last three league appearances.


After recently surpassing Robbie Fowler to become the club's all-time leading goalscorer on 129 goals (he's now up to 137), Salah reached another landmark at the weekend – his winner against Brentford taking him to a century of goals scored at Anfield.


But Salah's teammates won't have allowed him to dwell on his latest achievement for long, according to former Manchester City defender Micah Richards.

Richards: Salah is phenomenal


Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Richards said: "In the dressing rooms of the top teams, there is never any sense of reflection or pausing to take stock of what individuals are achieving. The focus, always, is on what is next.

"So Mohamed Salah's latest achievement — 100 Anfield goals, 186 in total for Liverpool — won't have been dwelt on.

"Liverpool's players will be focused on trying to pinch a top-four place. The rest of us, however, can marvel at him.

"I explained two weeks ago here what made Mo special. I need to update things: he's actually astonishing me now. What a phenomenal player."


It now seems remarkable that Liverpool were able to sign Salah for an initial fee of just £36.5m from Roma back in 2017.

He has since gone on to score 186 goals in 302 games for the Reds and sits fifth on the all-time top scorers chart.

Salah will hope to add to that tally before the end of the season and snatch Liverpool an unlikely spot in the Champions League for the seventh consecutive season under Jurgen Klopp.
