Mo Salah has named the three players he loved to watch as a boy in the Champions League and whom have had most influence on his career.
Salah would have been just 12 when the Reds won the Champions League in 2005 but he does not name-check Steven Gerrard in a new interview.
“My earliest football memory was watching the Champions League matches,” he tells FourFourTwo. “I always loved watching Zidane, Totti and the Brazilian Ronaldo.”
Discussing how it feels to play with Liverpool in the competition, he added: It’s an amazing feeling when you hear that music now before kick-off.”
The Egyptian joined the Reds in a bargain £36.9million deal from Roma and has proved a massive success at the club, having already scored 28 goals for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season.
And the player has spoken of his affection for the Reds, having supported them as a boy.
“Ever since I was a kid, I had been a Liverpool fan — they were my favourite Premier League club,” he added.
“I’ve loved the club since I was young and knew this was a team I wanted to play for.
“I knew the history that this club has and, as soon as I got the chance, I had to make it happen.”
