Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah has promised that he will sacrifice his dreams for the ones “of the club and fans”
The Reds are currently engaged in battles on multiple fronts as they run for the Champions League and the Premier League trophy.
Sitting one point adrift of the Premier League toppers Manchester City, the Merseysiders have an opportunity to lift the league crown for the first time after almost thirty years.
Winning the domestic title seems to be more important to the local fans than embracing the Champions League glory.
Talking about his personal goals, Salah has vowed he will put them aside to please Liverpool supporters, admitting he would rather go for the most prestigious club trophy in the world.
“I will be honest with you, the most prestigious competition for me is the Champions League,” he said.

“But the dream for the entire city and the club is the league. So, I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but if we win both that would great and this is what we are trying to do.”
“All you can do is win your games, and hopefully they will fail in one so we can win the title,” he added.
Jurgen Klopp and his men head towards the Allianz Arena to meet Bayern Munich for the return leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
After a goalless draw at Anfield, the Reds have a good chance to dump the Bavarians out of the competition should they find the back of the net first.
The Egyptian forward has also pointed out that he is mentally prepared for the upcoming challenges.
“My mind is sharp, and there is pressure, but I am strong mentally, and we just have to keep going.
“We will see what we can do at the end of the season, but mentally I am ready for everything.”
