Milner on Salah: He’s a great addition to the squad
Liverpool’s vice-captain James Milner expressed his satisfaction with seeing Mohamed Salah in a red shirt for the first time.
The 31 year old midfielder feels that Salah is going to be an important asset for the Reds’ campaign in the English Premier League this season.
June 14, 2017 marked Salah’s first appearance for the Reds, and he was able to score the equalizing goal in a 1-1 draw against Wigan Athletic in a pre-season friendly at the DW Stadium.
Salah didn’t just hit the back of the net, the 25 year old also showed a glimpse of what he could add to a strong and compact Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp.
James Milner, who is yet to play alongside the Egyptian, said: “[He was] very good. He’s a top player, he’s shown that in the little time that he’s been here and I’ve seen it playing up close also,” he added. “He’s a great addition to the squad and it was nice for him to get off the mark as well.”
And when asked about Liverpool’s attacking options, Milner said:“They are all top players and it’s easier when you are as good as they are,” He added “They are all lively with great imagination, movement and great touches and they can all see a pass and are all unselfish as well, so you need that and that’s a big part of our game obviously, unselfish team play. With and without the ball those three players can do that.”
Liverpool’s next pre-season game will be up against Crystal Palace on Wednesday which will mark 19 June,2017.
