Egypt and Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has expressed his pleasure with meeting Egyptian fans everywhere he goes, confirming that they are the ones who give him huge support at every challenge.

Salah, who returned to training last Friday at Melwood, marked his first pre-season appearance with a goal when he came off the bench to score against Manchester City after just 52 seconds on Wednesday with the attendance Egyptian fans in the stands wearing the national team jersey.

"There are a lot of Egyptians everywhere. I feel good, I feel loved. These are my people and I am very happy about it," Salah was quoted as saying on Liverpool's official website on Saturday.

"The atmosphere in the last game was very good,” Salah remarked, referring to the reception he was given as he signed countless autographs after the match at the MetLife Stadium on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old Salah confirmed that he's enjoying being back with the Liverpool squad as he and his teammates ready themselves for the challenge of trying to better their after last season.

"I am very happy to be back. I feel good and my shoulder is much better. I’m very happy to be back in the squad," Salah said.

"Last year I had a great season – everyone, not just me. When people talk about me, yes there is some pressure because it was a record [number of goals scored in the Premier League], and we also have to improve in the Champions League and finish in a better position in the Premier League.

“But it’s not something I worry about, I just keep doing what I am doing. I am happy about what I am doing, so I just keep doing the same,” the Egyptian star said.
