Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah has today opened up on the difficulties of understanding some of his Reds’ teammates, particularly those with Scouse accents.
Egyptian wide-man Salah made his return to the Premier League during the summer, after Liverpool splashed out a fee that could eventually rise to 50 million Euro to bring the former Chelsea man in from Serie A outfit AS Roma.
And he has certainly not taken long to settle back into the rigours of the English game, having already popped up with an incredible 20 goals across all competitions to this point in the campaign.
The 25-year-old was on the scoresheet yet again yesterday evening, netting his side’s 3rd during a 4-0 rout of Bournemouth with a brilliant run and curled finish past Asmir Begovic.
Unsurprisingly, Liverpool’s fans are already absolutely enamoured with their diminutive winger, with Salah himself also looking right at home on Merseyside.
Speaking in an interview earlier today, Salah was questioned on life in Liverpool, before opening up on some of the difficulties he has endured whilst trying to decipher the Scouse accent:
‘I understand Scouse but it’s very difficult! The accent is so hard to understand.’
The African dynamo also went on to reveal that the accent of one of his teammates in particular has proven especially tough to get a grasp of:
‘Flanno’s (Jon Flanagan) accent is the worst one, I cannot understand anything from him. The way he is talking is like he’s not talking normally!’
Next up for Liverpool is a trip to the Emirates stadium to take on Arsenal in a Premier League clash on Friday night.
