Mohamed Salah has said that Liverpool will “fight like champions” despite a poor run of form that plunged his side’s Premier League title defence into turmoil.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are languishing 13 points behind leaders Manchester City after suffering a 3-1 defeat at Leicester City on Saturday.
Salah had given Liverpool the lead with his 17th league goal of the season, but the ‘Reds’ collapsed in the closing stages.
The Egyptian forward has made a defiant statement of intent.
“It’s been a tough period for many reasons. We are champions and we will fight like champions, until the very end,” Salah wrote on Twitter.
“We will not allow this season to be defined by the recent results we’ve had. That is my promise to all of you.”
While retaining the title may now be beyond Liverpool, they are still in the Champions League.
Klopp’s team face the Bundesliga’s second-placed side Leipzig in a last-16 first-leg clash on Tuesday.
The match, which has been moved to the Puskas Arena in Hungary due to German government coronavirus regulations not allowing Liverpool to travel to the country, could be pivotal to the rest of the Reds’ campaign.
