Craig Bellamy has hailed Mohamed Salah as “brilliant” signing for the Liverpool FC team.

His addition the Reds squad in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma was met with some skepticism in the summer.

Salah struggled to make an impression in the Premier League at Chelsea following a switch to Stamford Bridge from Basel in 2014.

The Egypt international was sent out on loan to Fiorentina and then AS Roma before the Italian giants completed a permanent deal in 2016.

Salah scored 19 goals in his final campaign with AS Roma before Klopp earmarked the African forward as the perfect addition to bolster his attacking options.

Th summer signing scored on his Liverpool debut in the Premier League in a 3-3 draw with Watford at Vicarage Road.

Salah scored twice in victories over West Ham and Southampton either side of the international break to become the first Liverpool player to score nine times in 12 games in the Premier League.

Former Liverpool striker Bellamy lavished praised on Salah for his outstanding start to his Anfield career.

“He will get goals,” Bellamy told Sky Sports.

“He scored 19 goals and the season before that he got 15. He’s been a brilliant signing for Liverpool this season.”

Salah scored from the penalty spot to secure Eygpt’s place at the 2018 World Cup in Russia last month.
