After the record signing of Salah, the Reds looked to drop Coutinho into midfield and place Sadio on the left wing with Firmino keeping the striker position and Salah taking the right wing.
Recently Klopp had commented on Salah that he has the speed to break through the Premier League’s toughest defences.
And Klopp said: “He’s a fantastic player with speed.
“We said after last season that we would try to add things to an already really good squad.
Salah has proven he has the goal-scoring abilities as he registered 15 goals and 11 assists last season in Serie A in 29 games he played that season.
With Sadio and Salah the Reds on the wings, the attacking trio would be a lot stronger and faster when facing big opponents in the Champions League and Premier League and hopefully bring a lot more goals for the fans to see.
