Liverpool legend Graeme Souness has described Mohamed Salah to be a selfish player after the reds beat Brighton 3-0 away from Anfield. Salah got two goals with an assist that saw Liverpool win their 30th game in the league.


At the beginning of the game, Salah opened the scoreline for Liverpool. two minutes later Henderson doubled the score to make it 2-0. Although Brighton fought back to get a goal before half time. After the first half salah later doubled his tally for Liverpool to help the reds win in the 76th minute.

The Egyptian international had 10 out of 19 shots that Liverpool had in the game with Brighton. Souness believes he took the match to another level of selfishness.


When Graeme Souness spoke to Sky Sports he said, He was at it tonight, from the first minute. The golden boot is important to him. You see how he reacts when he is not given the ball on time. He was shooting at every opportunity. On three occasions his teammates will not be happy with him. Salah has always been selfish. He was super selfish this night.

He wants his Golden boot. The league has been won, he has done his part, he has gotten his goals. He wants the golden boot and he has thoughts that he is in a team that creates chances. So he thinks he thinks its much still on for him.

They have gotten an element of selfishness. But I think he has taken it to another level. On past occasions, Mane has fallen out with him in a case where he feels he is supposed to pass the ball in to score.
