“I’m very excited to be here. I’ m very happy.
“I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club. I really want to win something for this club.
“We have a great team and very good players. I was watching the games last year and everyone was giving 100 per cent to win something.
“Everyone can see the coach gives everything. I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us.”
Liverpool tried to sign Mohamed Salah back in 2015 but he opted for Chelsea that time but failed to settle at Stamford Bridge & ended up moving on loan to Fiorentina in Winter Transfer window of 2015. Then he moved to AS Roma on loan again in August 2015 before making a permanent move to Italy’s Capital.
Salah had a great season with AS Roma in Serie A scoring 15 goals & creating 11 more in 31 appearances.

Salah could be a great signing as Liverpool needed more depth in their attack as they will be back in the UEFA Champions League next season and head coach Jurgen Klopp needs a strong squad to face against the likes of Champions League heavyweights Barcelona, Juventus, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.

Salah can play in both wings plus from the middle which exactly Liverpool needed. Liverpool fans expect from Salah that he links up quickly with the likes of Firmino, Coutinho & Mane like he did with Dzeko, Sharaway & Nainggolan in Roma, if they are to impress next season.
