Egyptian forward Mohamed Salah said on Monday he hopes he can help Liverpool end a five-year wait for silverware after making a blistering start to life at Anfield.
The 25-year-old -- who joined from Italian club Roma in the close season -- has scored 21 goals in all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side and is joint-top of the Premier League scorers’ charts with Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane.
“I want to win titles here, I cam here to win titles -- to win something for the club, for us, for the fans,” he told Sky Sports News. “I love to win something here. We are working hard every day to win something. I am sure we are going to win something this year.”
Salah has formed a key part of Liverpool’s ‘fab four’ attacking line-up alongside Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
The five-time European champions -- who have not won a trophy since the 2012 League Cup -- sit fourth in the Premier League ahead of Tuesday’s match against Swansea City and take on Porto in the Champions League last 16 in February.
