The German coach said of Mane that “He is one of the 18 players in this great club who managed to achieve this number. It means a lot.“.
He continued, “People do not remember that when Mane scores 100 goals, he makes a great effort in play and in defense, attacks and creates opportunities for his teammates. 100 goals is only a number, there are other important numbers, but I am happy for him to reach this number today.”
The Senegalese international scored the first goal in the Crystal Palace match at Anfield, which ended with the Reds winning 3-0.
Salah also scored the second goal for Liverpool in the 78th minute, after a corner turned its path to him, to meet it with a powerful and accurate shot to the left in the narrow corner of the guest goalkeeper.
In his statements to the Liverpool channel, Klopp said about Salah: “What a player, what a professional. What a person. We appreciate him so much, you can’t imagine that.”
The Egyptian star rushed a little in his celebration of the goal, as he took off his shirt, to receive a warning in the 79th minute, a shot that Klopp underestimated in his statements.
In response to the question about the precedent of this happening from the Egyptian winger, he explained: “I remember one against Manchester United, and I was close to taking off my shirt myself that night.”
The goal was Salah’s fourth goal in the Premier League this season in 5 matches, and it was his fifth goal in all competitions in the 6 matches he played so far.
With this result, Liverpool are temporarily at the top of the English Premier League table (Premier League) after 5 rounds.
