The 31-year-old Egyptian maestro showed his scoring power with a goal in each half of Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Brentford.
Klopp, smiling with pride for his talisman, praised Salah’s extraordinary performance, highlighting the forward’s unique place in sports history. Salah’s incredible achievement comprised 198 goals for Liverpool and an additional two goals for Chelsea.
“Crazy,” Klopp stated about Salah.
“Goal number 200 in England, right? Exceptional, played a super game today,” Klopp added. “Two players always around him, he kept the ball.
“We had so many good moments first half. [The] composure for the first goal is insane. No doubt in that area, you see it on the scoresheet. Special player.”
