Redknapp: Salah has become Liverpool hero
The Egyptian is having an incredible debut season at Anfield, scoring 43 goals while providing 15 assists in 47 games across all competitions.
“There’s something about Liverpool football club. It can transform players and take them to a whole new level,” Redknapp said.
“Yes, Jurgen Klopp has this amazing ability to extract that little bit extra out of everyone, but we’re seeing with Mohamed Salah right now what can happen when the Liverpool fans really get behind a player.
“We’ve seen it with Fernando Torres. We’ve seen it with Luis Suarez. Before them it was Robbie Fowler and Ian Rush. It’s like the fans can give certain players a super power.
The Egyptian is currently leading the Golden Boot race with 31 goals, four ahead of Tottenham’s Harry Kane, with only three league games remaining
“There always seems to be that one special player appear, where you’re like ‘I didn’t know they had that in their locker!’
“That’s what’s happened to Salah this season. He’s been sensational.
“And it will be fantastic to see him and the whole Liverpool team go head to head with Real Madrid in the Champions League final, an incredible moment for those players, the fans and everyone involved.”
Salah is set to make history after qualifying to the Champions League final against Real Madrid, which will take place in Kiev on May 26th.
