When Mohamed Salah signed for Liverpool from Rome in 2017, his record fee was initially greeted with some scepticism. While he’d been singled out as a future star back in Egypt, and performed well at the Italian club, no one could have predicted the impact he was to have at Anfield.
Scoring an unprecedented thirty-two goals in thirty-six games for the club, he became the sensation of the Premier League. Not only that, but he has also won over fans of all stripes with his humility and grace off the pitch, as well as his versatility and flair on it. Few players have inspired such fervent admiration so quickly, with chants of his name still reverberating around Anfield, and after just one season, he’s already on his way to becoming a Liverpool legend.
In this insightful biography, bestselling sports writer Frank Worrall examines Salah’s electrifying debut season at Liverpool and the highs and lows that brought him there.
