Mohamed Salah has set his sights on winning the Champions League with Liverpool after scooping the PFA Players' Player of the Year.

On Sunday, the 25-year-old beat off competitions from Manchester City trio David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, and Leroy Sane as well as Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea to win the coveted prize.

The attacker who joined the Anfield outfit from AS Roma in the summer of 2017 has enjoyed a blistering form this season scoring 41 goals across all competitions.

And with Jurgen Klopp’s men already in the semi-final of the top European club competition, the Egypt international is aiming to help the team secure their first title since 2006.

“My personal ambition is to win something with the team. I always think about the team, I don’t think about myself,” Salah was quoted as saying by Independent.

“The most important thing is to win something with the team and we’re very close now with the semi-final. Hopefully, we’re going to win.

“The team has helped me a lot because of the way we play. They pass me the ball a lot and always try to find me.”
