Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah was awarded this season's Premier League Golden Boot award this weekend after scoring the highest number of goals of any player.

Harry Kane has challenged Mohamed Salah to beat him to the Golden Boot for the Premier League's top scorer again next season.

Kane said: "It's nice to hit the 30-goal mark, for me that was always the target to improve on last year's 29".

It also ensured Salah claimed the Premier League golden boot, finishing two goals clear of Tottenham's Harry Kane - victor of the award in the previous two seasons - to add a sixth major individual honor to an already overflowing mantlepiece.

With 44 in all competitions, Mo is 2 away from equaling it while a hat-trick in Kiev will see him become the leading goalscorer in a single season for the Reds.

Real Madrid have one final league game against Villarreal on Saturday prior to the final on May 26, whereas Liverpool have concluded their league season and have been afforded an extended break before heading to Ukraine.

"Some people have asked me if two weeks is too long and I say: "no, it is perfect", Klopp said.

It seemed as if the 25-year-old could do no wrong in the eyes of the Liverpool fans after his record-breaking return to English football this season but they jokingly booed him after he dispossessed his daughter. prompting the Egyptian to quickly pass it back.

"I noticed the same thing in the Champions League when Roma played against Real".

But with the Champions League final against Real - winners of the past two tournaments - to come, the biggest piece of silverware is still to be settled.

"I'm not talking about the best finisher or the best work-rate, I'm talking about all round".

"I think especially the last few weeks were really hard", added Klopp after his side ended a three-game winless run.

"Everyone can imagine that the boys now need a little bit of rest. So it's really hard to stay focused, and he is focused".
