James Milner is yet to play alongside Mohamed Salah for Liverpool, but the vice-captain feels he has seen enough already in training to suggest the summer signing is going to be an important asset for the side.
The Egypt international marked his first appearance for the Reds with a goal in Friday evening’s 1-1 draw with Wigan Athletic in a pre-season friendly at the DW Stadium.
As well as finding the target, Salah impressed during his 45-minute bow for the club with a lively display across the front line – and Milner feels he will prove to be a fine addition to the ranks.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: “[He was] very good. He’s a top player, he’s shown that in the little time that he’s been here and I’ve seen it playing up close also.
“He’s a great addition to the squad and it was nice for him to get off the mark as well.”
Salah was deployed alongside Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino in a three-pronged attack at Wigan, supported by Adam Lallana and Ben Woodburn.
