The Egyptian forward became the club’s all-time top scorer in the Premier League following his double in a lopsided 7-0 victory over old foes Manchester United.
Liverpool legend Kenny Dalglish is the latest in a long line of former players to shower praise on Mohamed Salah for reaching his latest milestone. The Egyptian forward became the club’s all-time top scorer in the Premier League following his double in a lopsided 7-0 victory over old foes Manchester United on Sunday. Robbie Fowler had held the previous record with 128 goals. The Egyptian has been in sensational form ever since moving to Anfield. His form has been one of the few positives in an otherwise disappointing season so far for Liverpool.
To reach that landmark against a club of Manchester United stature would make that achievement extra sweet. Kenny Dalglish extended his heartfelt wishes to Mohamed Salah for breaking this latest record. “Every achievement by any individual should never be undermined or overlooked. It’s a fantastic achievement and he’s done it in a short space of time, shorter than maybe Robbie did. The most important thing is the individual awards are brilliant but you can’t beat the team awards,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.
“Within the success of the team, there’s always individuals [who] make contributions. A goal at one end, it’s equally as important that Alisson saves another one at the other end, or the defender kicks one off the line. So, everybody’s got their part to play. Without everybody performing for the team, there’s no way that you’re going to be successful just by scoring goals. But you also have to be successful in not letting in goals. But it’s fantastic for Mo, [he’s] been a great servant to the club and long may it continue.”
Kenny Dalglish then turned his focus to that surprising 7-0 victory over Manchester United – something not many saw coming on Sunday. “I think the most important thing for the 7-0 is everybody’s enjoyed it and had a few days to enjoy it. We’ve got to settle down and look forward to the other games, because they’re equally as important as what the Manchester United game was. They’re not going to judge us by how the first team did against Man United – we’re going to disappoint somebody I think!” he added.

Liverpool supporters will get to see more of Dalglish later this month, as the club legend will be present in the dugout on March 25 for a LFC Foundation charity match. He will manage Liverpool FC Legends in a contest against the Celtic counterparts. “I think the cause is the most important thing, isn’t it? The players have set up Forever Reds and they want to look forward and try to help former players that have fallen on hard times. The boys have always been very gracious in giving up the time to be involved in the games, and they’re also being a wee bit self-indulgent because everybody that comes along loves it,” he added.
“They all look forward to it and most of them have had the experience of some of the games in the past and it’s been very well received by the people who come and watch at Anfield. It’s a great day, it’s great for all the lads to get back together again and reminisce about the same stories that they spoke about three or four games ago and will speak about again. It’s camaraderie and when you have that, that’s when you get successful teams – and that’s what the boys had throughout their careers at Liverpool.”
