The Mohamed Salah signing is all any of us have been able to talk about for the past few hours. Jürgen Klopp, the club, and the community are thrumming with excitement about how the coming season is shaping up now that ink is on paper and all the official tweets have been sent.

And it’s not just us picturing the (very bright) future, either. Salah is pretty keen to talk about how happy he is and how he pictures the next season.

“I’m very excited to be here,” Salah told the official website. “I’m very happy. I was in Egypt and I came two days ago. Now I’m here and I’m very happy to be here. I would like to win something with the club. Everyone knows the club is very big. We have to do something for the fans and win something.”

Salah believes that Klopp is the right manager to make that happen.

“I’m very excited to start the season with [Klopp],” he added, when asked how much Klopp’s presence played a role in his decision to move. “Everyone knows he is a great man and a great coach. I’m very excited to start the season.”

The former Chelsea player is also keen to show English football how much he’s grown and improved in the last three years.

“Even my personality was different [back then],” Salah said. “I was a kid – I was 20 or 21. Now I’m four years older, everything is different. I have lots of experience in three clubs: I was at Chelsea, then Fiorentina and then Roma. I have good experience.”

Salah comes to Liverpool with over 300 league and international appearances. The skill he’s demonstrated in the most recent Serie A season and his keen desire to keep evolving as a player make him an excellent fit for Klopp’s grand plans. As for Salah, himself, he’s got his eyes firmly on the prize:

“I will give 100 per cent and give everything for the club. I am happy to be here and I really want to win something for [Liverpool].”
