Liverpool talisman Mohamed Salah has revealed the one man in the dressing room he cannot understand.

In an interview on the official website The Egyptian, who has scored 20 goals in 26 appearances, has also revealed that his trip to Anfield with Chelsea in 2014 had him dreaming of playing for the Reds.

Salah was part of the Chelsea side which won 2-0 at Anfield in April 2014 – a result which left Liverpool’s title dreams in shreds, however Salah was impressed.

“It was while I was at Chelsea that I first got to play at Anfield,” Salah told the club’s website.

“I can remember I told myself ‘I have to come here one day and play’ after I’d experienced that atmosphere. That atmosphere was unbelievable. Now I am even happier to play for Liverpool here.

“Why were Liverpool the right club for me? Because of many things. I even used to play as Liverpool on the PlayStation on FIFA when I was 18 or 19 as Steven Gerrard, Sami Hyypia, Jamie Carragher, Michael Owen and Xabi Alonso. I also remembered that atmosphere again and it came into my mind.”

Salah said he jumped at the chance to complete a £36.9million move from Roma in the summer after Jurgen Klopp came knocking.

Asked if he understands the locals, he said: “I understand Scouse but it’s very difficult. The accent is so hard to understand. Flanno’s (Jon Flanagan’s) accent is the worst one, I cannot understand anything from him. The way he is talking is like he’s not talking normally!

“I am happy when the fans sing my name. It makes you feel like ‘wow’. It changes your emotions. I have to thank the fans very much for singing my name. Really, I respect it a lot.

“As a team I know we haven’t won the Premier League for a long time so I would love to win it with Liverpool. We have a great team, we have a great manager so everything is good at the club. I am sure we can win trophies here together.”

The 25-year-old, who Calciomercato claim is already on the radar of Real Madrid, revealed he is delighted with the way things are going for him.


“I’m very happy here,” he added.
