Mohamed Salah Living His Childhood Dreams

12/8/2017


Mohamed Salah came to Liverpool on a club record transfer fee of £36M and admits that his move from Roma has given him a big opportunity to make his childhood dreams come to life.

The 25 year old will make his first Premier League appearance against Watford and to that plans a flying start to the 2017/18 with Liverpool. Also thankful to the club for the opportunity to represent his childhood dreams.


"It is a great club. It was a dream for me when I was young to play here one day.

"When I had the chance to come, I was thinking about whether I should stay in Rome or move here but because when I was young, it was a dream to me, I took the decision to come back.

"I would play as Liverpool on the PlayStation so I am happy to be here now. I was playing with a team like Steven Gerrard, Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher. I liked the team and the way they were playing. I was seven or eight years old so I was playing just to enjoy myself.

"I'm always looking for where I can improve myself so here, because of the city, because of the fans, you can feel the emotions and everyone wants to win something. Everyone is happy for me and I can feel that, even in the friendly games.

"I am very happy to be here and I would like to help the team so I am very excited to start in the Premier League games and I think we can win something this year together."

Mohamed Salah has had a previous spell at Chelsea and was able to make only 19 appearances for the London outfit, struggling to make himself a regular and scoring only two goals. Despite his previous struggles in the Premier League, he believes he could replicate his exploits in the Serie A.

Salah added: "It was always in my mind to come back. I like the challenge, I like English football and I want success here.

"I was not playing at Chelsea so I took the decision to go somewhere else. I went to Fiorentina and did six months and with Roma, I was there for two seasons so it was a good challenge for me. I had a good time with Roma and I did well so it was a good time to come back.

"As a person, as a man, even on the pitch you can see that I have a lot of experience now. I played in Italy, I was in Switzerland, I came to England then I went back to Italy so it's a big change in my life.

"I think I have improved everything. I think now, compared to three or four years ago, I can defend more, I can play more tactically, I can finish better than I could before.

“I scored about 40 goals with Roma so that's quite good. I always like to improve myself."
