David Moyes: Liverpool “very fortunate” to have Mohamed Salah in their team
David Moyes has expressed his admiration for both Mohamed Salah and Liverpool. The West Ham United manager feels both the club and the Egyptian are phenomenal.
Salah arrived in Merseyside in 2017 from Roma. Since then, the Egyptian hasn’t looked back. The 30-year-old broke the record for the most Premier League goals in a season in his debut campaign.
Moyes, who managed Everton for 11 seasons, believes Liverpool is a good place for Salah to be at. Speaking in an interview with Al Remontada via Facebook (h/t Liverpool Echo), he praised the Egyptian as well.
“I’m an ex-Everton and Manchester United manager, it’s difficult for me to say it, but it’s a really good club for Salah to be at and they have been an incredibly successful club and he is a phenomenal football player.”
Ever since joining the Reds, Salah has improved year on year in regards to his overall ability. He’s now one of the leaders of the team. The 30-year-old is the talisman in the frontline.
Not just in terms of scoring goals, the Egyptian formed a brilliant partnership with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in the initial days and continues to provide goals for the likes of Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz.
Moyes, who’s also managed our bitter rivals Manchester United, is of the opinion that we’re lucky to have someone like Salah in the side.
“I think it is a beautiful place for him to be in and Liverpool are also very fortunate to have Mo Salah as well.”
Salah recently put pen to paper and signed a contract extension, keeping him with Liverpool till 2025. There had been speculation surrounding the future of the Egyptian, but now fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
In 254 appearances for the club, Salah has scored 156 goals and provided 63 assists. The 30-year-old has been front and centre of our attack under Jurgen Klopp. Our success under the German is down to the team, but the Egyptian is a big part of it.
