has reflected on his “firsts” in football – from PlayStation to his time at Liverpool.

In an interview on Liverpool’s official website, Salah has spoken about where it all began in terms of his Liverpool career as well as shedding some light on his childhood.

The Egypt star said, “The story of me playing as them on my PlayStation is true; sometimes it was as other teams, but most of the time I was Liverpool. Back then, I could never have imagined I’d be here one day, but it was always a dream of mine and you have to try and follow them.”

On when he first knew he wanted to play for Liverpool he said “It was when I went to Basel from Egypt, I had a plan in my mind that I would hopefully one day come to Liverpool. There was a chance before, but at the time it didn’t work for both sides. When there was interest again last year, I was very interested in coming to Liverpool straight away in my head, but you also have to see what the plan for you is and how you will fit into it. Here I am now!”

On his first time he played at Anfield for Liverpool he said “I came on as a substitute against Crystal Palace, I remember the reception from the fans clapping their hands – a very warm reception which made me feel welcome quickly. It was very nice of the supporters to do that. Now, this is my home.”

Salah will hope to continue his goalscoring form in Liverpool’s next game against Arsenal at the Emirates stadium on Saturday 3rd of November at 7:30PM Egyptian time.
