Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp has spoken about new signing , saying that he is a fantastic player with speed.

The German has hailed the arrival of Mohamed Salah as the Egyptian adds greater speed to the squad, which will give Liverpool a major threat in the final third.

“Even if people didn’t know too much about him, they [must have] watched a few videos and they are impressive,” Klopp told

“We have had a few talks of course, spoke to each other – he is a really nice lad. He is really looking forward to coming to Liverpool and joining us.

“He is a fantastic player, with speed. We said after last season, there are a few things we would try to involve in an already really good squad; one of the things is speed, being kind of a finisher, preparing chances, making goals and all that stuff. He brings all this in.

“He is a naturally fit boy – he can run as quick and as long as he wants. That’s all good. I’m really looking forward to [working with him],” he added.

The Egyptian winger put pen to paper last month on a five year contract, becoming the club’s record signing as well as the most expensive African player in history.
