Jamie Redknapp opens up about ‘sensational’ Liverpool FC signing
Jamie Redknapp heaps praise on Mohamed Salah following his fine form for Liverpool FC
Jamie Redknapp has heaped praise on Mohamed Salah following his sparkling form for Liverpool FC this season.
The Egypt international signed for the Merseyside outfit from Roma in the summer transfer window and has slotted seamlessly into the first team at Anfield.
Salah continued his fine start to the new season on Saturday when he scored twice in Liverpool FC’s 3-0 victory over Southampton on the Premier League on Merseyside.
The 25-year-old has been in brilliant form and has scored nine goals and made two assists in 12 Premier League appearances so far this season.
And former Liverpool FC star Redknapp has praised the forward for showing the mental strength to bounce back from his failed spell at Chelsea.
Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp said: “Mo Salah’s start at Liverpool has been sensational.
“He has scored nine Premier League goals already – more than any other Liverpool player after their first 12 games for the club, overtaking Robbie Fowler.
“When he left Chelsea, Salah must have questioned whether he was good enough to play at the top level. After thriving in Italy he has returned as one of the most exciting forwards in our league.”
Liverpool FC now switch their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash against Salah’s former club Chelsea at Anfield on Saturday evening.
The Reds head into that game knowing that a win over Antonio Conte’s men would move them level on points with the west London side.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool FC are currently 12 points behind leaders Manchester City in the title race after 12 games of the new campaign.
