Klopp lauds Liverpool's 40-goal Salah

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has called for Kop boss Jurgen Klopp to think wisely in terms of team selection ahead of Liverpool's Champions League semi-final against Roma, suggesting to use talisman Mohamed Salah sparingly during domestic competition.

Asked which he would prefer, the PFA gong or the European Cup, Salah told reporters: "I have no doubt. the Champions League".

It has been a remarkable debut campaign for Salah following his off-season arrival from Serie A side Roma, who Liverpool will face in the Champions League semi-finals - the Egypt global leading the Golden Boot race with 30 Premier League goals ahead of Harry Kane. "If you had a choice, then of course the Champions League".

The Egyptian headed in his side´s second in the 69th minute to join Ian Rush and Roger Hunt - the only other Liverpool players to reach 40 goals in a single season.

Chelsea kept their faint hopes of Champions League football next season alive by closing to within seven points of Spurs with a stunning eight-minute fightback to deepen Southampton's predicament in the bottom three.

Liverpool FC were 5-1 aggregate winners against Premier League leaders Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. "I'm sure he'll keep doing that for the rest of the season". It's a great feeling.

"But you know, you can see today with the team everyone tries to pass the ball to me to help me".

"It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team", he told United Kingdom newspapers.

"To win the Champions League is "whissssshhhh" I can't say "woahhh".

The goal also saw the Egypt worldwide reach the 40-goal mark across all competitions; a feat that he achieved in just 45 games. "And what a number we scored as a team in the whole season, that's insane".

"Second-half I though we improved greatly, I thought we were well in the game until a brilliant second goal from their perspective kills the game". It's all about him and all about us, how we finish the season.
