Mohamed Salah: Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool fans will remember goal v Man City in 60 years

Last update on.
Mohamed Salah's goal gave Liverpool victory over Manchester City 2-1, before the reigning champions even equalised.

"If Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi score that goal, they claim it is world-class. Because Mo Salah is world-class, he scores that goal.

It's difficult to express the magnitude of Salah's goal in Sunday's draw between Liverpool City and Manchester City. Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool manager, did his best.

After receiving the ball from the right side of the box, and being surrounded by three other players, Bernardo Silva was placed on the ground. Salah then shimmied past Aymeric Leporte before firing a spectacular strike out of Ederson’s reach and in off to the far post.

Klopp stated, "Only the most talented players in the world score such goals."

"The first touch, first challenge he wins, then putting it on his left foot and completing the situation was absolutely extraordinary.

"This club will never forget these things, so people will talk about it for a long while - in 50 to 60 years they will still be able to remember this goal."

Salah scored in seven of his previous games in all competitions, and in eight out of nine games this season.

Salah has scored nine goals in all competitions this season. Salah has scored in all seven of his Reds appearances. This is his longest streak of scoring goals. He has scored in every game except one this season.

Jordan Henderson, Liverpool captain, said that it was "incredible." "He just kept beating the players, and he is deadly in those places."
