Jürgen Klopp believes Liverpool will provide Mohamed Salah with the ideal platform to fulfil ambitions of developing his ability even further and winning silverware.
The 25-year-old tied up a switch to the Reds on Thursday by agreeing a long-term contract with the club, which will officially begin on July 1, 2017.
It’s news that has delighted Klopp, who confirmed he has long admired Salah’s talents since he broke into the first-team set-up at FC Basel in 2012.
“Mohamed has the perfect mix of experience and potential – this is a really exciting signing for us,” the manager told Liverpoolfc.com.
“He knows the Premier League, he has pedigree in the Champions League and he is one of the most important players for his country.
“His record in Italy has been outstanding and he possesses qualities that will enhance our team and squad. I have followed him since he emerged at Basel and he has matured into a really good player.
