Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says the club's scouts convinced him into in the summer, revealing that they wouldn't stop praising the Egyptian.

Salah joined Liverpool from Roma on a five-year contract for £34.3m in the summer. The fee has already proved to be a bargain, with Salah scoring his 20th goal of the season in all competitions against in a 4-0 on Sunday.

The 25-year-old is the leading goalscorer so far this season.

Klopp has admitted it was Liverpool's scouts who ensured he signed Salah in the summer.

“Our scouting department did a ­fantastic job around Mo,” said Klopp. “They just didn't get out of our ears about him.

“It was, ‘100 per cent he is ready, he is ready'. They did a great job, absolutely.

“There is only a short period of the season we have played so far, but already I have been asked if I am surprised by what he is doing.

“I could be surprised if I had thought about it because I didn't set out the number of goals I expected from him when we signed him.

“I didn't tell him that you have to do this. We knew what we were getting was a very offensive-minded midfielder who plays a lot of games as a striker, but also has the ability to make goals, to set up goals.”
