Klopp plays down Mo Salah’s Golden Boot ambitions

Jurgen Klopp has played down Liverpool player Mohamed Salah’s Golden Boot ambitions, insisting the striker is focussed on securing a top-four spot and reaching the Champions League final.

Salah is on 30 goals for the campaign and in pole position to deny Tottenham’s Harry Kane (26) the accolade of Premier League top-scorer for the third straight season.

But Klopp, whose side head into this weekend’s game at West Brom in third spot and are also preparing for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final against Roma next week, said at his pre-match press conference: “The main target for Mo as well is to finish in the Champions League spots and go to the final.

“We have to play normal football and if Mo is at his best he will be a goal threat. We don’t have to change anything.”
