Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that they ‘were all convinced about’ the decision to sign Mohamed Salah.
Salah has scored 12 goals in 17 appearances with four assists in all competitions and the German tactician admitted he was the only attacking option the whole club agreed on and he hopes he continues his good goalscoring run as the season progresses.
“We were sure he can help us. Michael Edwards, Dave Fallows and Barry [Hunter], they were really in my ear and were on it: ‘Come on, come on, Mo Salah, he’s the solution!,” Klopp told club website.
“When you have 20 players on the table, different players, it’s difficult to make an early decision, but we all were convinced about it so could make the early decision so we could really get him.
"He’s a fantastic person, a nice lad and a really good football player.
“I didn’t think if he can score 12 goals or whatever in 17 games [but] I hope he’s not finished now!
“That would be nice if we talk after the season about different numbers - and both numbers should be much higher.”
