Egypt's Salah makes first appearance in Liverpool training
Ahram Online, , Saturday 8 Jul 2017

Egyptian star winger Mohamed Salah got his Liverpool career under way when he joined the team's training on Saturday.

The 25-year-old, who completed his move to Liverpool from AS Roma last month on a five-year-contract, made his first appearance at the club's training facility, beginning preparations for the 2017-18 campaign.

"After meeting his new colleagues and grabbing a bite to eat, Salah was out on the pitches as Jurgen Klopp put his charges through their paces," Liverpool said on their website on Saturday.

Liverpool started their preparations for the new season last week but the international players were given more time to rest after following international duties.

Salah, who notched 15 goals in 31 Serie A appearances for Roma last season, will now be vying for a place in Liverpool's attack, which is mostly occupied by Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho.

Salah enjoyed a highly successful season with Roma, helping them finish as runners-up in the Serie A behind champions Juventus.

The former Basel, Chelsea and Fiorentina forward scored 19 goals and provided 15 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions last term.

He also made 52 appearances with the Egyptian national team, scoring 29 international goals.
