Despite hitting another impressive goal mark this term, Georgino Wijnaldum still expects more from the prolific Mohamed Salah.

Georgino Wijnaldum has heaped praise on Mohamed Salah but wants to see more from the Egyptian moving forward.

The prolific Egyptian was back in the goals in Liverpool’s latest outing, as they booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a second leg 2-0 win over RB Leipzig.

Despite an inconsistent campaign for Liverpool. Salah has been able to maintain his impressive standards with Wijnaldum among those happy to sing the praises of a talismanic figure.

For the fourth season in succession, the 28-year-old has hit 25 goals for Liverpool in a single campaign.

Wijnaldum told Liverpool’s official website of Salah’s stunning record: “Yes, it is [pretty amazing].

“We hope that he can continue doing that because that will make it easier for us to win games.

“[It’s] amazing what he is doing. He is always searching for a goal, always searching to come into positions to score a goal.

“Yeah, 25 is a good number – hopefully he can continue scoring goals.”

With another effort added to his tally against Leipzig, Salah is now up to 119 goals for Liverpool through 191 appearances.

He already has two Premier League Golden Boots to his name and is leading the way in 2020-21 as he chases down a notable treble of prestigious prizes.

Salah’s return for the Reds this season, in what has been a testing campaign for Jurgen Klopp’s side, has already bettered that from 2019-20 when he finished the campaign as a title winner.
