Mohamed Salah: I like to put myself under pressure at Liverpool FC
The Liverpool FC forward opens up about his dramatic improvements over the past couple of seasons
Mohamed Salah believes his thirst to improve has contributed to his success at Liverpool FC.
The Egypt international’s move to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window was met with some skepticism given his disappointing eight-month spell at Chelsea FC in 2014.
Salah scored two goals in 17 appearances in all competitions for the west London side before he was sent out on loan to Serie A side Fiorentina before he moved to the Italian capital with AS Roma.
The 25-year-old has dispelled any doubts about his ability to thrive in the Premier League with a staggering 22 goals in 27 games in the top-flight campaign to help Liverpool FC challenge for a top-four finish.
Salah netted in Liverpool FC’s 5-0 win at Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 clash to take his tally to 30 goals in all competitions.
The Liverpool FC summer signing explained the secret behind his success and dramatic improvement over the past couple of seasons.
“It’s easy to play with this kind of quality,” Salah told BBC’s Football Focus.
“If you look at me now and five years ago, everything has changed both mentally and physically.
“I’m trying to improve myself every day. I always like to put myself under pressure to improve more.
“I give all my life to football, I only think about football. This is what is on my mind all the time.”
Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table ahead of the visit of West Ham United at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.
The Reds have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals after a 5-0 win at Porto in the first leg of their last-16 clash earlier this month.
