Liverpool boss Klopp: Salah knows success only arrived thanks to teammates

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah knows he owes his success to his teammates.

Salah hit goal number 31 for the season in victory over West Ham on Saturday.

"In football it is all about doing the right thing in the right moment," Klopp said.

"Like Mo's desire for goals, you could see that.

"Flexibility, being fluent, depends on all the players around. If only one player is flexible and fluent, it doesn't help.

"If you see how we change positions, Roberto immediately defends each moment for Mo. Sadio is doing the same. It's really important.

"He (Salah) is obviously doing well. It was not the biggest chance we had in the game which he scored from. It was a nice goal.

"Sadio could have scored one or two times more. Roberto deserved a goal. Emre (scored) the opener.

"Mo is obviously a boy who is full of greed to score goals. That's what you need in front of the goal, of course."
