'Salah is the selfish one in the group'

English Premier League

Mohamed Salah has been labelled the 'selfish one' of Liverpool's deadly attacking trio by a former Premier League winner.

The Egyptian remains in the hunt for the Premier League Golden Boot after moving to 19 goals with his brace against Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday.

There was a little friction between Salah and Sadio Mane earlier in the season at Burnley, but Former league winner Tim Sherwood feels there is nothing wrong with the Egyptian being the selfish one in the group.

"You see Mo Salah desperate there, desperate to get the Golden Boot," Sherwood said, according to the Metro.

"The only problem he might have is his manager might be looking after him for next season.

"I think if he played all the games they have remaining, not easily, because Jamie Vardy and Aubameyang are right up there with him but I think he’d get over the line and win that Golden Boot.

"You see how desperate he is to score goals all of the time.

"It’s a good trait to have. He’s absolutely devastated he hasn’t got a match ball to take home. It’s a good trait to have. I’m not sure Sadio Mane thinks it’s a great trait because there is a few times when Mo Salah should be playing people in.

"He’s the selfish one of the group. I mean that in the nicest possible way. I like my strikers to be selfish. Mo was very selfish, he would have liked to have scored the goal rather than make the assist.

"The unselfish one without doubt is (Roberto) Firmino. He’s totally a team man. Anyone who is in a better position than what he thinks he is then he just puts them in and finds the pass and Mane is a little bit in between both of them. So they have a lovely blend there."
