Liverpool offered Navas and Ceballos in Salah swap transfer deal

Liverpool offered Navas and Ceballos in Salah swap transfer deal

Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish presented Mohamed Salah with the Golden Boot award after he scored a record-breaking 32nd goal of the season in a 4-0 win over Brighton.

Despite winning the competition five times, Liverpool have been starved of success among Europe's elite since their last victory in Istanbul 13 years ago.

"I think it's a record that will stay for a long time".

Man City Sergio Aguero continued his goal scoring instinct with 21 goals, Leicester City Jamie Vardy hit 20 goals, Man City Raheem Sterling notched 18 goals followed by Liverpool's Roberto Firmino's 15 goals this season.

"Everyone can imagine that the boys now need a little bit of rest, we give them two days then we go on a little camp and will not train [at] high intensity".

"This was the ideal final of the season, of a very exciting season, and a very intense season".

With this feat, he becomes the second African after Didier Drogba (2006-07, 2009-10) to claim the prize and the third Liverpool player after Michael Owen (1997-98, 1998-99) and Luis Suarez ( 2013-14).

There was the Golden Boot for Premier League's top scorer to be presented, the club's player of the year trophy too.

"He was fantastic", Klopp added.

"I can not do it alone - it is collective work".

"We all can imagine how it would be if everybody tells you every day how brilliant you are and they not only say you are brilliant, they give you an Oscar - an award for this, award for that, award for getting out of the auto without an accident".

"It is really hard to stay focused but he is focused".

Although Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool have netted 40 goals in the competition, more than any other side, the ruthlessness displayed by Zinedine Zidane's side at the Bernabeu was made all the more impressive as they were without the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Dani Carvajal.

Brighton had already secured their survival by beating Manchester United last weekend.

While he was posing for pictures with the highly-coveted award, his four-year-old daughter Makka Mohamed Salah came running on to show off her own skills which sparked huge cheers from the stands.
