Salah has just set the record for the most Premier League goals in a single campaign, and has 44 in all ahead of the Champions League Final in Kiev. But he’ll be going head-to-head with the competition’s all-time record scorer – and four-time winner – Cristiano Ronaldo. Klopp stresses that his player has a long way to go to catch the undisputed king of the Champions League. “Mo has played a fantastic season, but Cristiano has played 15 seasons like that,” said the Liverpool boss. “He has scored something like 47,000 goals!
