Following a failed stint at Chelsea earlier in his career, Liverpool’s decision to sign Mo Salah was questioned as something of a risk. However, they and manager Jürgen Klopp have been proved categorically correct to sign a player then firmly on an upward trajectory. Having become a key player in Liverpool’s Champions League and Premier League successes, Salah has established himself as one of the world’s truly elite forwards, scoring goals at an astonishing rate.
“Where else can you find a striker with those sort of numbers?” asked Klopp. “His work rate is exceptional, he’s a super professional. He works his socks off in games, but I see him in between games as well, how dedicated he is and how hard he works at improving.”
