Murphy: Salah is the best Liverpool signing of the last decade.

Mo Salah has been labeled the best Liverpool signing of the past decade after scoring his 70th goal in just 100 appearances for the club on Saturday against Bournemouth.

Former Reds star Danny Murphy said that the club have made their fair share of fine signings during the past ten years but for him, the Egyptian superstar stood out from the pack.

The Mirror via Talksport reported Murphy as saying:

“Mo Salah is a unique player.

“To score this many goals so quickly from that wide position is sensational.

“To compare him to strikers is difficult because he doesn’t play centrally, but to achieve what he has so quickly from a wide role is a better achievement than what any of the strikers at Liverpool have achieved.

“He’s probably been as good a buy for Liverpool as anyone over the last ten years.

“I know Luis Suarez was sensational, but Salah’s consistency and his durability as well, he very rarely misses games.

“And he’s so unassuming, he goes about his business so under-the-radar. He’s not flash, he doesn’t do any silly provocative celebrations, he just keeps banging in goals."

There is a theory about that despite his outstanding exploits, Salah is not as adored by the fanbase as his counterparts in Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

However Murphy tends to disagree.

“The love for Mo Salah is there – I just think it’s subsided a bit due to Mane’s brilliance this season, and Firmino, too.

“But ultimately when, or if, Mo Salah leaves Liverpool he’s going to be remembered not just because he’s a wonderful goalscorer but because he’s been part of this team that has won the Premier League after 30 years and has won the Champions League.

“That’s why he’ll be remembered. 

“All the goals only matter if something comes at the end of it.”

I think it’s impossible to split Mane, Salah, Van Dijk and Alisson.  They each took us up a level after signing and made it possible to sign the next one but equally benefitted from the subsequent signing themselves.

Its certainly arguable that a wide forward who signed for £30m or so and has scored 70 goals in 100 games amongst shit loads of assists was our best signing.

The beauty of this is that we have quite a few in the running for it over the past few seasons.

Think Salah all gave us hope we could challenge as in his first season he was unplayable. Many of us (including Klopp) thought duck me if we can get the defence sorted now we have someone who will win us games. The rest is history but yes you could say his transfer was the catalyst for what we have achieved in Klopps time.

He set an unachievable future target for himself that first season. Unfairly his level of performance now is sometimes judged by that standard and because it's merely great and not fantastic some supporters are disappointed.
