Liverpool's Mohamed Salah backed to re-create 2017/18 heroics after Golden Boot debut season

Posted: 27 July 2018 Time: 11:30

Mohamed Salah will receive all the support possible from Liverpool to become one of the best players in the world and not a one-season-wonder, according to one of his teammates. 

Salah, 26, scored 44 goals in 52 games across all competitions last season as the Reds finished fourth in the Premier League and as UEFA Champions League runners-up.

The Egypt international picked up a clean sweep of the PFA Player of The Year award, Golden Boot and BBC African Player of the Year - amongst numerous prestigious prizes.

And his teammate James Milner has now backed him to prove himself again this season, as one of Europe's elite players - after scoring 53 seconds after his introduction against Manchester City in the ICC recently.

"The best players in the world aren't known because they just did it in one season, they do it over and over again," Milner said, as quoted by Sky Sports.

"He is more than capable of doing that. There is pressure when you have had one good year to deliver again but he is a top player. He's shown that. He's going to keep on improving.

"We need to keep improving as a side with him as well, and make sure that all the pressure is not on his shoulders to deliver goals and get us out of tough situations.

"It's down to all of us to help him be the best player he can and do that as part of a team."
