Signing Mo'Salah was due to scouts pressure - Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said that the club scouts hounded him to sign Mohamed Salah in the summer. Salah, who joined Liverpool in a five-year deal for £34.3m in June, has proved a revelation since moving to Anfield, scoring 19 goals in 25 games in all competitions this season.
Klopp has confirmed it was Liverpool's scouts who ensured the German signed Salah from Roma earlier this year.

He said "Our scouting department did a fantastic job around Mo, they just didn't get out of our ears about him. It was, '100 per cent he is ready, he is ready'. They did a great job, absolutely. There is only a short period of the season we have played so far, but already I have been asked if I am surprised by what he is doing, I could be surprised if I had thought about it because I didn't set out the number of goals I expected from him when we signed him. I didn't tell him that you have to do this. We knew what we were getting was a very offensive-minded midfielder who plays a lot of games as a striker, but also has the ability to make goals, to set up goals."
