Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has said there will still be talk of Mohamed Salah’s goal against Manchester City in 60 years.
Salah finished off a superb individual play as the winger beat four City defenders before passing the ball to Ederson to give Liverpool a 2-1 lead.
The advantage did not last forever, but the goal will long remain in the memory of the fans – Liverpool, Manchester City and neutrals alike.
Curtis Jones received assistance for Salah’s goal but it was the Egyptian who seized the opportunity.
He received the ball several meters from the edge of the City area and escaped pressure from three men before entering the area, looking at center-back Aymeric Laporte.
He made room for himself to go past Laporte with one eye for a shot and fired one past Ederson to the delight of the 40,000 Liverpool fans in attendance.
It was a move they have made several times before – against Tottenham in 2018 and Napoli on the season, Liverpool took home the Champions League trophy for the first time in 14 years.
Yet that’s what made it so special.
Jurgen Klopp is one of the many fans of the goal that Salah scored in the 2-2 draw and gave his opinion on it after the match: “The second goal, only the best players in the world score goals like this.
“The first touch, the first challenge he wins, then he goes there, gets him on the right foot and then ends the situation as he did, absolutely exceptional.
“Because this club never forgets anything, people will talk about this goal for a long, long time and in 50 or 60 years when they remember this match. It was really good. “
Regardless of De Bruyne’s draw and the final result, the goal will enter the pantheon of unforgettable moments that Mo Salah has produced in the Liverpool jersey, which will undoubtedly see many more enter.
