Salah Hits Back At 'Selfish' Claim By Liverpool Legend

Liverpool superstar Mohamed Salah has responded to claims of him being a "selfish player" made by Reds legend Graeme Souness.

Souness recently said the Egyptian star was the most selfish player he'd ever seen in a column for The Times, and claimed that personal targets are important for him.

Salah, however, has been in fine form this season after taking his tally to 10 goals in nine Premier League games with a hat-trick against Manchester United on Sunday evening.

"To be fair, as [long] as the team keep winning, I'm more than happy," Salah said after the game, as per the Daily Mirror.

"I'm always trying to give assists – the first one I could have gone alone but I gave it to Naby.

"I'm trying always to give my best for the team to win, which is the most important thing."

Salah's goals on Sunday saw him become the leading African scorer in Premier League history, surpassing Chelsea legend Didier Drogba with his 107 goals in 167 appearances.

With the Egyptian doing the business on the pitch, the forward's contract situation at Anfield remains unclear, with the player reportedly demanding £500 000 (R10 million) a week.
