Philippe Coutinho sends honest message to Liverpool FC fans about Mo Salah
Philippe Coutinho is backing Mohamed Salah to develop into a key player for Liverpool FC
Philippe Coutinho is backing Mohamed Salah to develop into a “hero” at Liverpool FC in the years to come.
The Egypt international was one of European football’s top performing players last season as he netted 44 goals in all competitions following his move to Anfield from AS Roma last year.
Salah helped Liverpool FC secure a top-four finish in the Premier League and also reach the Champions League final, where they were beaten by Real Madrid.
The 25-year-old’s campaign ended in disappointing fashion when he had to be subbed off in the first half of the final due to a shoulder problem.
Salah is now facing a race against time to be fit for the World Cup as he bids to help Egypt progress in the tournament in Russia.
And Coutinho, who played alongside Salah for Liverpool FC for six months before his move to FC Barcelona in the January transfer window, is expecting to see big things from him in the years to come in a Reds shirt.
Coutinho is quoted as saying by Metro: “Watching Mo Salah since then has been amazing.
“He is going to be a player who will be a big hero at Liverpool for a long time, I am totally convinced of that.”
Liverpool FC have already completed their first signing of the summer transfer window after having wrapped up a deal to bring Brazilian midfielder Fabinho to Anfield from Monaco.
