Gullit questions morale of Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah

The former AS Roma winger has now scored 50 goals with Liverpool in just 65 games, becoming the fastest player to reach this milestone in Liverpool's history.

It was a good evening for all Liverpool's front trio, with Roberto Firmino opening the scoring, Salah adding a second just before half-time and then netting from the penalty spot early in the second half, before Sadio Mane made amends for missing a second spot-kick with the fourth.

Klopp described Shaqiri's touch for Mohamed Salah's first goal of the evening a touch of 'genius'.

"You should not constantly think about it".

"I think he would say thanks to his teammates because it's quite hard to score goals without these wonderful passes and crosses", said the Liverpool manager on Salah's half century.

But for all Shaqiri's satisfaction with such hefty praise from Klopp, he is more concerned with continuing to fulfil the objectives given to him by the boss. "Really. If he is not celebrating, I don't know if he is maybe a bit annoyed about getting asked about it [his scoring record]".

"It is an exceptional number and hopefully he can continue".

"I think I have the quality and vision to give good passes and you can see that I wanted to give another good performance".

"You can't win 4-0 if most of the things are not good, and tonight most of the things were really good".

Rafinha replaced Lionel Messi and helped Barcelona win without him as the Brazilian scored the opener in a 2-0 Champions League victory over Inter Milan on Wednesday.

A stance that has previously proven to be quite divisive amongst the Serbian fans (a country that fails to recognise Kosovan independence), Shaqiri famously marked a goal at the 2018 World Cup against Serbia with the 'double-headed eagle' celebration.

UEFA banned Red Star from bringing fans to their next two European away matches, which happened to be against PSG and Liverpool.

"You can see on the pitch we have a lot of good players and creativity and we are together".
