Mohamed Salah has delivered his seal of approval for the 'Egyptian king' song Liverpool fans have created in honour of the 30-goal forward.
The 25-year-old’s incredible impact since signing from AS Roma last summer quickly led to chants being formed to celebrate his exploits.
Salah thrives on feeling that support from the stands and revealed just how much he appreciates the latest catchy ditty dedicated to him.
“I’m happy to hear that every game. I’m happy to feel the love from the fans. It’s very nice, I love it!” he told Sky Sports, admitting he hums along to the tune.
“The atmosphere here is unbelievable. When I was here four years ago to play against Liverpool, I said, ‘one day I have to play here’.
“The fans are fantastic. From the first day I have felt the support, I feel they like me. I have to give more to make them happy. I feel it in the stadium, even in the warm-up. It’s a fantastic atmosphere.”
Salah’s nominal starting position in Jürgen Klopp’s system is on the right of the three-man attack alongside Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
But a licence to roam and the subtle switches for and during each match have helped him achieve a feat only 12 players had previously done in Liverpool history.
“We change the system every game. Sometimes I play as a second striker, sometimes I play on the right, sometimes I play on the left,” said the No.11.
“I always start on the right. We change in the game; sometimes we play 4-4-1-1 or 4-4-2, I play second striker or I play as a striker. It depends on the game and depends on what the manager wants.
“He has helped me to improve myself, to do what I’m doing now. I’m happy about that. I have freedom to do what I want, but we have 11 players so I have to defend, I have to do my work, attack and defend – everything.”
The Egypt international was on target during Liverpool’s comprehensive 5-0 victory at FC Porto last week, which put Klopp’s men in prime position to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.
But, with West Ham United set to visit Anfield on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League, Salah stressed the importance of ensuring the Reds compete in the tournament again next season.
He added: “We must finish [in the top four], it’s not optional. We have to work hard and fight for it. We have fantastic players, a fantastic manager and fantastic fans. Everyone deserves it.”
