As summer signings go, few have been better than Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.

The flying Egyptian winger arrived from Roma for around £37m and he had his doubters after a failed stint with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

However, after years of forging a very positive reputation in Serie A with Fiorentina and Roma, he has finally returned and shown Premier League fans what he is capable of.

He has scored 11 times in his first 15 games for the Reds, while also providing three assists for his teammates in that timeframe.

Already, he is a firm fan favourite, with he, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino providing some scintillating football to watch for the red half of Merseyside.


His adoring fans have even spread to Manchester, where a sign saying 'Mo Salah King of Egypt' was spotted at a WWE Show.

It was not easy to spot, but it appears Salah himself actually did and took to his Instagram story to react.


The sign wasn't the only Liverpool-themed thing to appear at shows in Manchester, with wrestlers Seamus and Cesaro coming out on the RAW show in Liverpool kits.

Safe to say it didn't go down too well.


For the duration of the international break, the Egyptian forward will be having a little relax after a very hectic opening to the season.

He has played in virtually every Liverpool game and guided his country to their first World Cup since 1990.


"We were sure he can help us," Klopp told Liverpool's website. "Michael Edwards, Dave Fallows and Barry (Hunter), they were really in my ear and were on it: 'Come on, come on, Mo Salah, he's the solution!'.

"When you have 20 players on the table, different players, it's difficult to make an early decision, but we all were convinced about it so could make the early decision so we could really get him. He's a fantastic person, a nice lad and a really good football player."

However, even the manager is a bit surprised by his explosive start.

"I didn't think if he can score 12 goals or whatever in 17 games [but] I hope he's not finished now," Klopp added.

"That would be nice, if we talk after the season about different numbers - and both numbers should be much higher."
