The Egypt international reached the landmark in his 162nd top-flight match, making him the fifth-fastest man to reach his century.

Liverpool had opened the scoring at Anfield inside three minutes when Newcastle defender Ciaran Clark failed to clear a cross, allowing forward Mohamed Salah to control the ball and fire a left-footed half-volley into the roof of the net.

“I have made it public that I’d like to have him on board in our Olympic campaign and he hasn’t refused, which means he also wants to play with us,” Gharib, the celebrated former Egyptian player turned manager, said.

Leading 1-0 through Mohamed Salah’s league-high 17th goal of the season, Liverpool was pegged back in the 78th when James Maddison’s low free kick crept in and then went behind after another blunder by goalkeeper Alisson Becker.

During a phone-in with “Hadith Al Qahira” (Cairo Talk) show on the “Al Qahira Wal Nas” (Cairo and the People) channel on Sunday, the association’s director, Hassan Bakr, noted that Salah is known to frequently intervene in problems back in Egypt by donating.
