Liverpool goalkeeper Mignolet: Nainggolan told me what to expect from Salah

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has hailed the impact of Mohamed Salah on and off the pitch at Anfield.

Mignolet admits Salah has surpassed all expectations and says his humility and work ethic is just as impressive as his natural ability.

“Mo is a superstar but he's very much a team player," Mignolet said.

“Even on Sunday, he was working so hard for the team, getting back and defending and helping out his full-back.

“There's no danger of him getting carried away. He's very focused on his job. Teams know they have to look out for him but trying to stop him is very difficult.

"I know Radja Nainggolan really well and he told me he was a brilliant player. I wasn't expecting him to score so many goals, especially as a winger, but he's done so well.

“He knew what the Premier League was all about from his time at Chelsea and he obviously learned and progressed during his time in Italy. He's got quick feet but he's very strong too. You can't knock over him and he suits the English style of play.

“To score 20 goals already is a great achievement and let's hope he stays fit and keeps on scoring goals for us."
