Salah boasts many attributes and will enhance squad
Mohamed Salah boasts many of the attributes Jürgen Klopp was keen to enhance his Liverpool squad with this summer. The Egypt international completed a transfer to the Reds from AS Roma last month and is set to join up with his new teammates and the manager for pre-season training in the coming days.
Having assessed the qualities of a squad that secured fourth place in the Premier League in May, Klopp wanted to add greater speed to the options at his disposal – and believes Salah brings that and much more.
“Even if people didn’t know too much about him, they [must have] watched a few videos and they are impressive.
“We have had a few talks of course, spoke to each other – he is a really nice lad. He is really looking forward to coming to Liverpool and joining us.
“He is a fantastic player, with speed. We said after last season, there are a few things we would try to involve in an already really good squad; one of the things is speed, being kind of a finisher, preparing chances, making goals and all that stuff. He brings all this in.
“He is a naturally fit boy – he can run as quick and as long as he wants. That’s all good. I’m really looking forward to [working with him].”
