Salah v Brighton

Salah admits he’s prepared to ‘sacrifice UCL dream’ for Premier League title

Mohamed Salah has admitted that he would sacrifice winning his dream of winning the Champions League this year just to get his hands on the Premier League title.

Having reached last season’s final, Liverpool recommence their Champions League challenge this week when they travel to Bavaria to take on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

Having played out a 0-0 draw at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s men know that they must score in the Allianz, although Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah has said that if he could only win one trophy this season, he would prefer to win the Premier League.

“I will be honest with you, the most prestigious competition for me is the UCL,’’ Salah told the pre-match press conference.

“But the dream for the entire city and the club is the league.

“So, I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but if we win both that would great and this is what we are trying to do.”

Liverpool are currently sitting second in the league, but have a chance to regain top spot at the weekend when they face a struggling Fulham side, with Man City not playing due to their FA Cup involvement, and despite not scoring a goal in his last five outings, Salah said that he is mentally ready for the title run-in.

“The competition is very tough and we have difficult games left as do they,” the Egyptian added.

“All you can do is win your games and hopefully they will fail in one so we can win the title.

“My mind is sharp and there is pressure but I am strong mentally and we just have to keep going.

“We will see what we can do at the end of the season but mentally I am ready for everything.”
