Mohamed Salah

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been given a new name by one of his former managers.

Former FC Basel manager Heiko Vogel worked with Mohamed Salah between 2011 and 2012.

In a chat with popular media outlet Goal, Heiko Vogel called Mohamed Salah a gentle-giant.

Egyptian international Salah has been a key player for Liverpool since joining the club from Italian Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer of 2017 for a fee believed to be around $44m.

He scored 44 goals in all competitions in his first season at Liverpool including 32 goals in the Premier League.

In his first season as a Liverpool player, Salah played a crucial role to help the Reds into the Champions League final before they were beaten 3-1 by Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Salah sustained a shoulder injury in a collision with Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos during the first half of that game.

Liverpool graduated to the next level in the following year after they emerged Champions League winners last season.

Salah and Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to win the competition with the Egyptian netting one of the goals.

He has started the new season just like he ended last season after scoring three goals in three league games.
