Salah believes he'll win with Liverpool

Egypt's flamboyant winger Mohamed Salah believes Liverpool have now the quality to revive their glory days.

"As a team, I know we haven't won the Premier League for a long time, so I would love to win it with Liverpool," the 25-year-old attacker told Liverpool's official website on Monday.

"We have a great team, we have a great manager, so everything is good at the club - and I am sure we can win trophies here together." 

The Reds – who have won 18 league titles – haven't ended on top of the table since 1990. They last won a trophy in 2012 when they beat Cardiff in the League Cup final.

Salah is enjoying a scintillating run since coming to Anfield last summer, a move that saw him top the Premier League scorers' chart with 14 goals in 18 games.

The former Roma and Chelsea ace has become the first Liverpool player since Ian Rush in 1986 to score 20 goals – in all competitions – before Christmas.

Salah was shortlisted on Monday for the African Player of the Year Award alongside Senegal's Sadio Mane and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gabon.

'At Liverpool at the right time'

Salah talked about his debut at homeboy club Arab Contractors in Egypt and his journey across Europe, which he kicked off at Swiss side FC Basel before moving to Chelsea.

He started a Serie A adventure upon joining Fiorentina and later Roma, before returning to the Premier League with Liverpool where he's been enjoying his heyday.

"There was interest from Liverpool when I went to Chelsea, but I think if I'd come at that time maybe things wouldn't have maybe have gone as well then as they have for me now. Who knows?

"But I went to Chelsea and everything worked out how it did and now I am here at Liverpool at the right time.

"When I go somewhere, I am always telling myself 'I have to learn from here' - and I know, 100 per cent, I learned a lot from Chelsea; I learned how to be more professional and to become a better person and player.

"It was while I was at Chelsea that I first got to play at Anfield. I can remember I told myself - as I said on my very first day here - 'I have to come here one day and play' after I'd experienced that atmosphere.

"That atmosphere was unbelievable, really. I was very happy to play here against Liverpool - and now I am even happier to play for Liverpool here," he concluded.
