Mohamed Salah has credited Jurgen Klopp with helping to improve the Liverpool FC forward.

The Reds signed the Egypt international in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window.

Salah has scored an incredible 31 times in 34 games in the Premier League this season to sit at the top of the division’s goal-scoring charts.

The African forward’s domestic form earned him the PFA player of the year award ahead of Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne.

Salah scored two goals and made two assists to help Liverpool FC secure a 5-2 win over his former club Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final at Anfield before the Reds hung on in the return fixture to progress 7-6 on aggregate.

The 25-year-old has scored 43 times in all competitions to leave the Liverpool FC summer signing four goals short of Ian Rush’s record of 47 goals in a single season.

Salah heaped praise on Klopp for helping to transform the African forward into one of the world’s greatest players.

“I think he made a difference. He’s a great, great coach, also great man… he helped me a lot to improve myself,” Salah is quoted as saying by the Daily Express.

“I have also confidence to play what I want. We have a good relation together.”

Liverpool FC will take on another of Salah’s former clubs Chelsea FC in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

The Reds are in third place in the Premier League table.
