Mohamed Salah has left a huge message to Liverpool supporters on social media.
Liverpool found themselves sitting on the second spot despite securing 97 points throughout the season. The Reds went toe-to-toe against the greatest Premier League side ever, and failed agonisingly short to Pep Guardiola’s men. The wait for the league title goes on at Anfield as Manchester City were crowned as champions following their 4-1 victory over Brighton and Hove Albion.
The Anfield faithful were thrilled to witness the Premier League title go down to the wire. They might have fallen short collectively, but Liverpool bagged plenty of individual awards.
Scoring 22 goals throughout the season, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, all three from Africa, lifted the golden boot. Second most expensive goalkeeper in world football, Alisson Becker won the golden glove with 22 clean sheets. Before the game kicked off on Sunday, Virgil Van Dijk was named as the Premier League player of the season for stabilising an average defence.
Mohamed Salah, who lifted the golden boot along with Sadio Mane on Sunday spoke to Sky Sports after the game. The Egyptian brushed off the domestic disappointments and assured that they would begin another title challenge when August arrives.
“We did everything this season, we only lost one game. We got 97 points. I say congratulations to Manchester City and we will fight again next season for this trophy.” said Salah.
Liverpool’s season has not come to an end. The Reds beat Barcelona is a spectacular fashion to set up a grand finale with Tottenham Hotspur in the finals of the Champions League at Madrid on June 1. Anfield played a huge part in their comeback over the Spanish giants and Salah has demanded the crowd to raise their voice at Wanda Metropolitano after thanking his teammates, staffs and the fans following a breathtaking season.
Mohamed Salah summarized his season with a sentence. The caption read the following, “It feels bittersweet now but the season isn’t over. I want to say thank you to my teammates, coaches, and to the fans. And fans, please bring Anfield to Madrid.”

It marked huge progress towards the right direction and Jurgen Klopp has assured that his team will do everything to stop the title drought next season.
“Our season was good as well, a really good season, an unbelievable season. I can read all the stats, I can read all the numbers, it’s just really exceptional. The nice thing is if you would get an award for the biggest development jump I can remember, the boys would get that because it was completely different.”
“We used the base from last year but made a big step, unbelievable, and there’s still a bit to come. It doesn’t feel like this in the moment, it’s not a moment for already telling people what they can think; everybody knows we will go again, 100 per cent. But in this moment, if you really want something you feel the disappointment as well. That’s of course what we feel in the moment.” said Klopp.
