Video: Mohamed Salah’s first day as a Liverpool player

Joining Liverpool from AS Roma on Thursday, Mohamed Salah has taken in both Melwood and Anfield as the club’s record signing.

The 25-year-old signed a five-year contract with the Reds after Roma accepted an offer worth an initial £36.9 million, with a potential £7 million in add-ons.

Taking the No. 11 shirt, with Roberto Firmino adopting the No. 9, Salah is set to play a key role in Jurgen Klopp‘s forward line next season and beyond.

Though he is Liverpool’s second signing of the summer, he is the first to be officially unveiled, with Dominic Solanke unable to join until his contract with Chelsea expires on July 1.

And the Egyptian was given the VIP treatment as he was shown around the stadium and the training ground.

His shirt replaced Firmino’s in the Anfield dressing room, with Salah sat between Philippe Coutinho and Joe Gomez.

Speaking on his arrival on Merseyside, Salah said he would “give everything for the club,” as he targets silverware under Klopp.

“I’m very excited to be here. I’m very happy. I will give 100 percent and give everything for the club. I really want to win something for this club,” he said.”

“We have a great team and very good players. I was watching the games last year and everyone was giving 100 percent to win something.

“Everyone can see the coach gives everything. I hope to see that together we can give everything to win something for the club, for the supporters and for us.”

Salah is likely to make his first appearance for Liverpool in their opening pre-season clash against Tranmere Rovers on July 12.
