Mo Salah is Liverpool’s primary penalty taker, but it wasn’t always that way.

Talking about penalty taking duties, Salah said in LFCTV production, When Stevie Met Salah:

“I think when I came I wasn’t in the first one, two, three, four [penalty takers]. I don’t know”.

“Then there was a game at Huddersfield [in January 2018] and [Harry] Kane was scoring 21, 22 [goals]. Something like this. There was only one difference [between Kane and Salah] — penalties”.

“Then Milner was in the game and I wasn’t really aware of everything going on. I was like ‘Okay. I’m going to take it’, I asked him nicely”.

“A few players came to me and I said ‘guys, I need to take it. I need to score. We’re already [two] goals up”.

“And for me, there he [Milner] told me to take it. So I took and equalised with Kane and after that Milner came to me [to let me take them].”

Milner is famous for his penalty taking, scoring 19/21 penalty kicks.

Since Salah has took the reigns, he’s went on to score 24/27, which puts him at the 5th best penalty taker ever in the Premier League.
