The Reds’ legend is confident that the club made the right choice in luring the 25-year-old to Anfield, back to the English topflight

Jamie Carragher has praised Liverpool for the signing of Mohamed Salah following his blistering performances thus far.

Salah teamed up with the Merseyside outfit from Roma in June as the club's most expensive buy. And the former Chelsea flop has hit the ground running, scoring ten goals in 16 appearances in all competitions.

The former England star has lauded the player’s versatility and is hopeful that he can score many goals this season.

“When I saw Salah score his first for the club at Watford on the opening day, I felt this was a player who would score 15 this season,” Carragher wrote in Telegraph.

“I underestimated. He is on schedule to get 25.

'The Egyptian is more than a traditional winger. He is a wide striker with the ability to get into goalscoring positions every time he plays. 

"There has been plenty of criticism of Liverpool’s recruitment in recent years – much of it deserved.

“But just as with the signing of Sadio Mane in 2016, they have spent very well in bringing Salah back to England after his disappointing spell at Chelsea.

”As was the case with Mane, Salah already looks to be worth more than he cost," he added.
