Mohamed Salah now discloses when he is ‘extra happy’ at Liverpool

Liverpool attacker Mohamed Salah has shared the times when he feels ‘extra happy’ at Anfield.

Speaking with Sky Sports ahead of the derby clash against Manchester United today, the 30-year-old claimed he feels emotional when he helps the team through poor runs of form.

“Yeah, it’s always important when you score a goal, especially when the team is struggling – I think this is not our best season if I’m being honest,” said Salah.

“I’m always happy, and maybe extra happy when I feel like we’re struggling but then I score, with the team winning, I just feel that emotion.”

Salah feels emotional after scoring

Although Salah has received criticism for some of his performances this season, his numbers on goal remain quite impressive.

They may not be reaching his record-breaking figures of the past, but he has still managed to bag nine goals and five assists in 24 Premier League games.

However, his overall total is actually much closer to his usual standards. Having scored eight times in seven Champions League fixtures, the winger has amassed 20 goals and nine assists in 36 matches this season.

Having become somewhat isolated out on the right flank, Salah has started to play more as an inside forward in recent weeks.

This has seen a big increase in his influence over the game, helping Liverpool in more ways than one.

With Roberto Firmino leaving the club at the end of the season, the Egyptian is going to be the last member of Jurgen Klopp’s illustrious front-three – with Sadio Mane already gone.

With his experience at the highest level, Salah will continue to play a pivotal role at Anfield – and hopefully for years to come. He is absolutely crucial to any success had on Merseyside.
