Mohamed Salah's sale to Liverpool 'necessary' for Roma, says sporting director Monchi


New FC Barcelona superstar Philippe Coutinho has revealed what surprised him most about the club's dressing room.

"The quality that there is in all the staff, it is awesome how you train, but what has surprised me most is the group that is in the locker room", he told Mundo Deportivo.

"We knew we would create chances going forward [without Coutinho], but it was about the team".

An away trip to Southampton on Sunday saw another masterclass from Firmino as he picked up a goal and an assist to help his side to a 2-0 victory, taking the Reds to just two points behind eternal rivals Manchester United in the Premier League. If we would be in the final, I can say that we'd try to win it for sure. "Not conceding goals, we are always closer to winning the game, no doubt".

"Before this game, I am not sure how many teams would have wanted to play us anyway because when we are on it, like we were, we are very hard to play [against]". I hate to talk about the round after the actual round.

Firmino and teammate Mohamed Salah have both combined to score 49 goals in all competitions for Liverpool so far during the 2017-18 campaign.

"I think there's a real maturity about Mo Salah now", Lampard told BT Sport. We pressed up high to get the ball back. "I only answer nicely now because I am friendly and we are in public but if someone asked me about the round after the round in private I would leave the room".

"It was tough, but I also have to say that I had some good moments at Liverpool and the fans treated me really well, even though I wasn't able to win any trophies there".

Shelling out an incredible £142 million for the 25-year-old, the Catalan giants made Liverpool an offer they simply couldn't refuse.
