Liverpool’s latest summer signing Mohamed Salah has outlined his desire to fulfil the wishes of the fans and deliver silverware during his time at the club.
The winger followed standard procedure for a new arrival to perfection on Thursday as he turned a focus towards giving something back to the supporters.
There is an honest and refreshing excitement to Salah’s initial reactions to his big money move from Roma with the Egyptian grateful of another opportunity to make a name for himself in England.
“I’m very excited to be here. I’m very happy. 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,” he told LFCTV.
“Everyone knows Liverpool is a very big club. We have fans everywhere around the world. You can see on Twitter and Facebook that fans are crazy about [the club]. I’m happy for that because I feel the love from the fans. I feel the love from the fans in Liverpool here and I’m happy about that.”
“I’m excited. Liverpool haven’t won the Premier League for a long time. We have a great team and very good players. I was watching the games last year and everyone was giving 100 per cent to win something.”
“Everyone can see the coach gives everything. I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us.”
Liverpool’s capture of Salah is expected to be the first of many high-profile summer signings with Jurgen Klopp looking to dispose of the club’s record transfer kitty wisely in aid of constructing a title challenging squad.
The 25-year-old marks a fresh and alternative attacking option capable of ensuring the Reds don’t suffer from a lack of strength in depth in the same way they did following the turn of the year last season.
Fans can expect to see him play a key role in pre-season as Klopp looks to determine his strongest starting lineup and the various avenues in which to pursue with the array of attacking stars he has at his disposal.
