Mohamed Salah has declared that he wants the “unbelievable” feeling of winning the Champions League with Liverpool again this season.
The Reds are on course for a seventh European cup as one of a total of four potential trophies this season. If they get past Villarreal in the semi-finals, they could yet play Manchester City in the final.
City are subsequently seeking to clinch their first Champions League title. They got to the final last year but lost to Chelsea.
Salah formed an integral part of the Liverpool side which beat Tottenham in the 2019 showdown in Madrid. Indeed, he scored a penalty early on to set Liverpool on their way.
Speaking to the Reds’ matchday programme, Salah insisted that he wants more European glory with Liverpool. He also stressed that he wants to win the Premier League with Liverpool again.
Jurgen Klopp’s men romped to a 99-point triumph in 2020 under difficult circumstances amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“I want to have the feeling again that we had after winning the Champions League,” the Egyptian said.
“It was unbelievable and in my mind that’s why I want to win it again with Liverpool.
Liverpool must remember Salah truth as contract saga rumbles on
Liverpool must remember that no player is bigger than the club, even amid the clamour for Mohamed Salah to sign a new contract.
“The feeling we had in the city when we went on the bus and toured was unbelievable.
“The Premier League was kind of different because it was not done [due to COVID-19 restrictions], but I want to win the Champions League again and I want to win the Premier League again.
“That is my target with the team right now.”
Liverpool face a Villarreal side in the semi-finals of the Champions League who have proved the surprise package. And Klopp has insisted that his players will not underestimate the Spaniards, as Juventus and Bayern Munich perhaps did.
Meanwhile, City play Real Madrid in their final four tie looking to reach a second successive final.
Salah back on track for Liverpool
Salah will be raring to go for Wednesday night’s European clash following his recent goals.
He had not scored in eight matches heading into last Tuesday’s 4-0 win over Manchester United.
Nevertheless, he bagged a brace in that game to get back on track.
Salah again failed to hit the target in last Sunday’s Merseyside derby with Everton, but he will be looking to continue his impressive Champions League form against Villarreal.
The 29-year-old has scored eight goals in 10 matches in the competition.
