Jürgen Klopp has highlighted Mohamed Salah's attitude, character and teammates as the reasons behind the impressive form that earned the attacker yet more individual recognition this week.

The Egyptian forward was today named Premier League Player of the Month for February - the second time he has scooped the award so far this season.

Asked about Salah's latest gong, which came courtesy of a month in which he scored four league goals and provided two assists, Klopp said: "Deserved, obviously deserved so that's all good. 

"He had, so far, quite a good season, but [there are] a few games to come. Hopefully he can continue, that's all. Congratulations, Mo."

The Liverpool boss went on to hail Salah's hard work as a key factor in his success, though he also paid tribute to the teammates who have helped take the pressure off their colleague at times.

Explaining the secrets to the No.11's exploits, Klopp added: "His attitude, his character, the boys around him. There were not obvious difficult moments but there were difficult moments in all the games and the boys helped him through. 

"There were, for sure, a few games - I can't remember them, really - where he was not at his top level and then somebody else stepped up and made that decision for us. That helps, of course. 

"If you score this amount of goals you could feel pressure: 'If I can't deliver then we cannot win'.

"He was [decisive] very often so far, especially in the last few months; maybe not from the beginning but we always found somebody else who could make the difference so that's good for us, good for him."
