The forward, 28, is the Reds' leading goal scorer this season, playing a key role in the club sealing a first league title for 30 years last week.

Salah has also dedicated the team's triumph to the city of Liverpool and the supporters who were unable to attend the matches as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. "There's not many words that I could describe, maybe in Portuguese I can do that better!"

But though the Premier League trophy is on its way to Anfield, Klopp promised his players would not be easing off after utterly dominating the season to date. "I don't know that it's a tradition in Germany but it's an English tradition", Klopp said.

I always say that dreams are allowed and for sure a year ago we went really, really close: one point, but at the same time I can say congratulations for City because they for sure deserved it and won it and that's part of football.

Following the Reds" coronation as Premier League champions, goalkeeper Alisson has lavished praise on Klopp, saying he has the "maximum respect" possible for the German, who has a "special place' in the affections of all those associated with Liverpool following his achievements at the club. It's an unbelievable feeling for everybody, and for all the fans around the world.

"We can not spend millions and millions and millions because we want to or we think it is nice to do", he added. And Liverpool, this is for you'.

Salah has scored 92 goals in 145 games since joining Liverpool, including 21 in 41 games this campaign.

He told BeIN Sport: 'I'm very happy.

Liverpool will receive a guard of honour on Thursday from dethroned Manchester City, and Salah also believes that there is plenty more to come from Jurgen Klopp's men provided they can maintain their lofty standards.

'The atmosphere here is different to any other place'. "This is just another step, a big one, an unbelievably big one, but it's not the only thing I want to talk to the boys about when I meet them in 20 years' time".

"I love your passion, your songs, your refusal to accept defeat, your commitment, your understanding of the game and your faith in what we are doing", he said.
