Liverpool star Mohamed Salah sees no reason why his side cannot continue winning the Premier League and create a patch of ongoing dominance in English football.
Jurgen Klopp’s side lifted the trophy they most craved on Wednesday night following victory over Chelsea, as the top flight title returned to Anfield following a 30-year absence.
And now Salah has already turned his attention to next season and outlined how his team-mates need to retain both their consistency and a hunger for success.
‘Great, a great feeling to win the Premier League with the club after 30 years,’ he told the BBC. ‘It’s a dream come true.
‘We need to keep the hunger for next season as well because next season is going to be more difficult than this one. Other teams will try to strike back again to win titles.
‘But I think the hunger can drive us again to win another trophy and another one. Hopefully we can do that. We have to fight for that, that has to be the main target.
‘I don’t know why we can’t win the Premier League two times or three times. It’s only in our head. I think if you keep that hunger and we fight with all we have, it will be OK to do it next season, it will be possible.’
Salah has also outlined that fresh personal targets need to be set in order to keep hunger at an all time high, and ensure the squad remains as competitive as ever.
‘I think the next season for myself, when I see the situation right now, it will be really difficult,’ he added. I think more difficult than this one because the hunger when you win something – you win the Champions League, you win the Premier League – and when you win something it takes from your hunger.
‘So the thing is, now we have to change that mentality. You have to find the point in your head that drives you forward and keep that hunger for next season and still after.’
Jurgen Klopp’s side can reach 99 points if they beat Newcastle on the final day of the season, in a showdown at St James’ Park.
Salah and his team-mates are then to be afforded a short break following their heroics this season, before football makes a swift return to the calendar.
On Friday it was confirmed by Premier League officials that the 2020-21 season will start on 12 September and end on 23 May 2021.
Congestion has been caused due to the delay of the coronavirus pandemic, in which football was halted across the world between March and June this year.
