With Liverpool having confirmed Mohamed Salah as the club’s second signing of the summer, I thought it wise to test your knowledge of the Egyptian winger.
Andy Carroll was Liverpool’s record signing for six years before the Liverpool announced the purchase of Salah on Thursday. The news was met with overwhelming joy by supporters as it represents a departure from the ordinary for Liverpool.
Although Liverpool signed Sadio Mané and Jöel Matip last season and both have proven themselves to be top players for the club, Salah will arrive as a borderline world class attacker.
If I were to wrack my brains to remember the last time Liverpool signed a genuinely top-class player from a top European side, I would suggest Fernand Torres as evidence but even then, Atletico Madrid were struggling at the time.
With Salah joining Liverpool on a five-year contract, Jürgen Klopp has yet another top attacking player at his disposal. The likes of Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Mané will be boosted by the former AS Roma winger’s presence on Merseyside.
After two and a half years in Italy, confirming his status in Europe as one of the most potent attackers on the continent, Salah is raring to go once pre-season gets underway at Melwood next month.
Without any further ado, let’s put your knowledge of Mohamed Salah to the test!
