Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has praised the performance of his team's frontline players, describing Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah and Senegalese forward Sadio Mane as “brilliant characters,” with "outstanding skills."
"It's incredible how they've developed together. The boys are brilliant characters – different but brilliant," Klopp told sky Sport on Sunday.
"Of course, we signed [Salah and Mane] because they obviously had outstanding skills," he added.
Salah joined Liverpool in 2017, signing a long-term contract with the Reds for an initial $50 million, a club record, while Mane joined the team in 2016 for $34 million.
"I remember when we spoke to Mo the first time, he said 'Yes, but Sadio is playing on the right wing and he's not bad is he?' and I said, 'I know but he can play on the other wing as well',” Klopp said.
Salah has bagged 75 goals in 111 appearances for Liverpool, whle Mane scored 65 goals since joining Liverpool, with the duo sharing the English Premier League top scorer title last season.
The Reds are scheduled to face Chelsea, Salah's first team in the Premier league, on Sunday on the 6th matchday of the English Premier League at Stamford Bridge.
