Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer has congratulated Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah, for breaking the record of scoring the most number of goals in a 38-game Premier League season.
DAILY POST recalls that Salah netted the opener in Liverpool’s final game of the season against Brighton on Sunday to set a new Premier League goal record.
The record had been level between three players at 31 goals in 38 games: Alan Shearer, (Blackburn Rovers, 1995-96) Cristiano Ronaldo, (Manchester United, 2007-08), Luis Suárez (Liverpool, 2013-14).
But the Egyptian international has now broken the record, as the forward is credited with 32 goals in 38 EPL matches.
Consequently, Shearer congratulated the 25-year-old for overtaking his English Premier League scoring record.
“Congratulations Mo Salah on beating our record – myself, Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo,” Shearer tweeted through the Premier League’s official Twitter handle.
“You’ve had a magnificent season. What an impact you’ve had in that Liverpool team. It must be a joy to play in that team with so many chances created. Keep up the good work.”
