"It's insane. I saw a few videos from the game and how the fans reacted", Can told club website. It was a penalty in the 95th minute. "He is an wonderful signing for us and I hope he will score a lot of goals in the next few weeks as well".

Campioni added "Both organisations share a strong heritage and I believe that this cooperation will create unforgettable footballing moments for ALEXBANK's customers and all Egyptian Liverpool fans, eager to closely follow and support their preferred British team and LFC heroes".

Salah is leading the Reds with six goals so far this season, and Can is pleased with the way he has performed since arriving from Roma in the summer. He has scored a lot of goals, he has played brilliantly.
