Klopp is delighted to count on Salah as part of the Reds locker room this season.
"He has also made brave decisions. Going from Basel to Chelsea is a brave decision, of course for a player from Egypt playing in Switzerland it is kind of a dream going to a really big club in England," he said.
"Then you realise 'OK, it has not been that dream' but that didn't make him think he wasn't good enough. He wanted to prove it.
"And so he went to Italy, Firenze, Roma, and he proved everything. And that is another difficult league for a striker. They play different football but it is difficult for a striker especially, and he did well. And so we are really happy we could convince him to come here."
