Mohamed Salah has said that Liverpool has become his home and has lauded the club’s supporters for the incredible way he has been made to feel welcome and loved.
In his debut season with Liverpool, Mohamed Salah scored a mind-boggling 44 goals in 52 games. He went from a good winger at Roma to an outright world-class forward at Anfield in the space of 10 months.
He went from being compared to players like Anthony Martial, who has undeniable quality, to being spoken about alongside all-time greats like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo and while that is a debate for another time, he deserves every bit of praise he comes in for.
Naturally, Liverpool fans have taken to the Egyptian like a fish to water. In a matter of months, the former Basel man had his own song on the Kop.
In a fantastic interview with the Bleacher Report, Salah said: “I’m very happy now in Liverpool. They have made me feel like I’m home. It is amazing with the fans here.
“They sing songs for you in the stadium. They chant your name, fans wear your shirt everywhere. It is beautiful.
“I give football my whole life. So I’m happy.”
After the season he had, Salah has been tentatively linked with a move to the Bernabeu by Spanish press but it’s quite clear that he isn’t thinking about another transfer.
Salah is set to play at the World Cup in Russia in just over a week despite major injury fears after he sprained ligaments in his shoulder in the Champions League final in late May.
Speaking about the incident, Salah said: “It’s a lot of emotions, that moment.
“I’m a human being, so I feel pain, and I was thinking about my head, was thinking about the Champions League final—after that, immediately I think about the World Cup.”
Sergio Ramos claimed that Salah could have played on if he’d had an injection but the forward’s national team coach Héctor Cúper has responded, asking if Ramos is a doctor.
