Speaking to reporters at his media unveiling, Salah said: "I wanted to come because of the effort the club made to sign me and because I spoke to Mo Salah and Kevin Strootman about the club and the city and I only heard good stories about it.
"We played once with Liverpool and the atmosphere was amazing. I knew I'd play for a club with beautiful supporters, it was the only thing that I knew. What convinced me the most was the effort Tiago Pinto put in to sign me. I felt wanted and appreciated and that made me make the decision."
