The Egyptian scored his 50th goal for the Reds in their 4-0 win over Crvena Zvezda in October, becoming the quickest Reds player ever reach this milestone, as pointed out by Daily Mirror journalist David Maddock.

Salah has now spoken about breaking the record previously held by Albert Stubbins, who needed 77 games to score his first 50 goals for Liverpool.

"I'm glad about that. I'm always very happy and proud to break records, especially records at a club like Liverpool," Salah told BBC Sport.

"Being the fastest player to score 50 goals for the club is something great. But I need to carry on and score more goals – I'm looking forward to 100!"

Salah then insisted, however, that team trophies are more important to him than his goal exploits.

"What I have achieved with Liverpool is something great, when I look back," he added.

"When I came here at the beginning, I had a dream and things in my mind I wanted to achieve. We were very close to one of them but we lost in the final. But I think we are on the way and I am happy about what we are doing.

"To motivate myself, the team comes first – we need to win titles and we need to achieve something together. That's something that always motivates me.

"Last season, we were very close but in the end we didn't win anything. That's something that motivates me much more than individual awards. I want to win something for the club because I love the club. I want to win something here."
