Former Liverpool and Man City forward Craig Bellamy believes Mohamed Salah is what Liverpool need, describing his move to the Reds as “intelligent signing”.

Salah joined the Reds from Serie A runners-up Roma on a long-term deal, becoming the club’s record signing as well as the most expensive African player in history, and former Wales international Craig Bellamy has heaped praise on the Egyptian international

“I remember watching him when he was at Basel and he looked a very good player,” the Welshman told Liverpool’s official website.

“He deservedly got his move to Chelsea, it didn’t quite work out for him [there]… but his spell at Roma was very, very good. He has pace to burn and looks to go in behind, which is what Liverpool need, and hopefully he’ll work out to be a very good signing.”

Bellamy has revealed the difference between the Egyptian and his new team-mates Coutinho and Firmino, adding that Salah is the kind of player Liverpool need.

“What I like about him is that he’s always looking to get beyond and get behind the full-back and that’s really what they need,” he said.

“Coutinho, Firmino, they come towards the ball a lot, which is great because they’re excellent players and they make things happen, but you need runners.

“Mane made such a big difference because he was always looking to go in behind, so for me it’s an intelligent signing, a signing of the type of player they really need at this moment,” he added.
