Champions League: Salah reacts to Liverpool’s defeat against Inter Milan

Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah has reacted to his side’s Champions League 1-0 defeat to Inter Milan on Tuesday night.

Inter Milan defeated Liverpool 1-0 at Anfield in the Champions League round of 16 second-leg encounter, thanks to Lautaro Martinez’s second-half goal.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s side qualified for the Champions League quarter-final on a 2-1 aggregate win, having won the first-leg 2-0 at San Siro.

But Salah believes Liverpool struggled against the Serie A champions in the first half, adding that it was a tough match.

“Inter are a tough team; we struggled, in the beginning, we got the ball up in the second half more and once they got the red card we were OK,” Salah said at his post-match press conference.

“I hit the post twice, it was one of those nights. Maybe in the next game, I can score three! I don’t mind not scoring, as long as the team wins.

“The most important thing is to go through. Inter started well from the beginning, we had a little bit maybe in our mind as we were winning (from the first leg). It was good we can take the result, learn from it and carry on.

“We have lost but sometimes it can give you a push. Thankfully it’s not in the league. We’ve qualified and so the good thing is we are through. Everyone wants to win those trophies; we want to win the Champions League and Premier League. We are going to fight for both and let’s see what happens.”
