Salah listed among Liverpool’s 100 goal club

Egyptian football star Mohamed Salah recently made history in Liverpool, after he scored his 100th goal for the Reds in the Merseyside Derby, GiveMeSport website reported.

Salah’s name now falls alongside many Liverpool legends, such as Denny Dalglish, Michael Owen, and Ian Rush, as one of the great scorers in the history of the Reds, all of whom have scored over 100 goals.

The Pharaoh has played for Liverpool since the summer of 2017.

There may be a good number of Liverpool fans who are frustrated with the selfishness shown by Salah while scoring, but they cannot turn a blind eye to the statistics and figures.

The Pharaoh has, without a doubt, proven himself a phenomenon in England. 

Salah won the Golden Boot award for the Premier League scorer in his first two seasons with Liverpool, and although he was did not get the award last season, he played a huge role in winning his team the Premier League title for the first time in 30 years.
