Becoming the 30 th player to reach a century of goals in England’s top league, Salah received praise from all angles.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp told Sky Sports on Sunday: "With Mo's record, it's crazy, I don't know how many he can break and he's probably desperate to do so.

"Since he joined us, what a player! And he's still hungry.

“He was still not happy for not scoring one or two others, that's how top class players are.”

Reds fans online reacted similarly, taking to social media to heap more accolades on the forward.
