Alvaro Morata has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by Mohamed Salah’s strong form for Liverpool FC this season.

The Egypt international signed for Liverpool FC last summer after he was sold by AS Roma last year and he has made an incredible impact at Anfield.

Salah has scored more than 40 goals in all competitions to help Liverpool FC into the top four and reach the Champions League final.

The 25-year-old has also been recognised for his strong form by being voted as the PFA player of the year by his peers.

Morata is facing the prospect of potentially missing out on a place in the Spain squad for the World Cup after his stuttering form for Chelsea FC this season.

And the attacker has pointed to Salah as an example of how quickly things can turn around for attacking players.

Morata said in an interview with Spanish newspaper Marca: “The joy if you’re on the list [for the World Cup squad] can be great, but there’s a need to realise that the year hasn’t been the best and there’s a chance of staying at home.

“Football is about moments. Look at Mohamed Salah, who is fantastic and I’m happy for what’s happening to him.

“But last summer they said it was good for him to be sold and now look.”

Salah will be hoping to help to fire Real Madrid to the Champions League trophy when the Reds take on the Spanish giants in the final in Kiev later this month.

The Egypt international has been one of European football’s top performing players this season since his move to Anfield.
