Ian Rush says Mohamed Salah is 'a joy to watch'

Shrestha hands over award to Salah

Salah joined Liverpool last summer from Italy's Roma for £35 million ($48.5 million) and since then has established himself as a key player on their attacking line.

'I didn't play for Chelsea when I was here three years ago.

"For me I think he's been absolutely fantastic - I didn't really believe he'd score that many goals", Ian Rush told Liverpool Echo.

Salah had a less than successful time under Mourinho at Chelsea and went on to play just 19 times in two years at Stamford Bridge, leaving the club twice on loan.

In quotes that other football supporters will jokingly state are similar to those uttered by Robbie Keane upon his switch to Anfield, Salah told FourFourTwo magazine of his "love" for Liverpool and revealed he had been a fan of theirs since he was a little boy.

"We also spoke after the match against Manchester United this season and have a good relationship".




There may be a fine line between confidence and arrogance, but as long as Salah keeps scoring we're sure Liverpool fans won't care what he says about his own displays.

In response, he admitted: "Come on, I know I'm good!"

But the 25-year-old remained coy when quizzed about whether he was the new "King of the Kop", insisting he is only focussed on one thing. "I think I'm doing well".

"I'm happy scoring goals for the club I supported as a kid - that's all that matters".

"Now he is playing with a very big side, and I want him to focus more and more with the Reds so that he can make history".
