Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has described his Premier League record goal as the summary of “a great season.”
The Egyptian scored 42 goals in all competitions, with 32 coming in the League to break the record for a 38-game season.
Alan Shearer (1995-96), Luis Suarez (2013-14) and Cristiano Ronaldo (2007-08) had all shared the record with Salah, but now he has claimed it outright.
Reacting to the feat, Salah said: “Honestly as you can see, I have had a great season and still some games to go.
“For anyone the most important thing is to play good, to perform good, to score goals for your team. I am happy in the city, for the club and for myself for sure. It means a lot.”
Salah has scored, on average, a goal every 91 minutes in the League this term with nine assists.
He has also won the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) Player of the Year award.
