Salah Hits Liverpool Milestone, Klopp Reacts

Mohamed Salah's statistics prove that he has turned into one of the top players in world football, and he hit yet another impressive milestone for Liverpool on Sunday, one that manager Jurgen Klopp has since commented on.

The Egypt star was on target twice for the Reds as Klopp's troops beat West Ham United 3-1. The two strikes ensured that Salah became the first player to score 20 goals in four straight seasons for the club since the 1980s.

The last Liverpool star to achieve this feat was Anfield icon Ian Rush, and Klopp insisted that he is not surprised by Salah's goalscoring record.

"I'm not surprised. I work on a daily basis together with him (Salah) and he'll never stop having a massive desire for scoring goals," the German tactician told reporters, according to Eurosport.

"He is a world-class player, there's no doubt about that. How I said in the last few weeks when we didn't score that many, the only thing you can do is try and try and try again. You have to make good decisions, or better decisions."

Salah will now be eyeing Rush's impressive run, which saw him net 20 times or more in six consecutive campaigns from 1981 to 1987.

See where Salah ranks among this season's top league goalscorers in Europe:
