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 Bournemouth in a 4-0 win on Sunday.
The 25-year-old is the leading Premier League 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.”
