Salah moved to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal from AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window in what looks like a bargain following his brilliant return of 50 goals in 65 games for the Reds.

Mo Salah reached 50 goals for Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp's side got their Champions League campaign back on track with a comfortable victory over Red Star Belgrade at Anfield.

Liverpool begin back-to-back European games against Red Star Belgrade at Anfield on Wednesday exclusively live on BT Sport and McManaman is confident last season's runners-up will qualify for the knock-out stages.

"It's good that we maybe can stop talking about that [his scoring record] - it helps a little bit". You ask him all the time and then I go to him and say, 'How do you feel because you haven't scored as often?' - I am not insane! 'But it's an exceptional number, hopefully he can continue'.

His incredible run of goals plus the Premier League club's successful time in the Champions League, finishing as runners up to Real Madrid, led to him ousting Lionel Messi in the top three places for the Best FIFA Player award.

"When I was a player I played in empty stadiums", Klopp said. "The present for his birthday was not that he was in the lineup, it was that we played his favourite system with the double 6". At the beginning of the game there was a lot of chaos. It is quite impressive what people saw tonight.

"The other players had more rhythm and played good too but exactly in this moment when you have problems like injuries it is ideal we have a player like him".
