Salah has flourished since joining the Reds last summer, scoring 44 goals in all competitions during last term.
He helped Liverpool to the Champions League final and formed a fearsome front line alongside Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.
The Egyptian has struggled to replicate that form this year though is still finding the net on regular occasions.
Salah joined Liverpool from Roma having previously failed to impress at Chelsea.
He played alongside former Barcelona star Samuel Eto’o while at Stamford Bridge and the Cameroonian has revealed details of a secret conversation between the two.
“I hope that Salah remembers the day we were together in Stamford Bridge dressing room after he’d had a poor performance,” Eto’o sports channel Al Kass.
“I asked him to be patient and told him ‘You are a good player and you will become a great player’.
“Salah has turned into that big player and will write his own story through persistence and strong desire.
“He has unbelievable skills and is currently performing at a top level that’s allowing him to compete for Ballon d’Or.”
Salah recently admitted he always wanted to join Liverpool.
“When I went to Basel from Egypt, I had a plan in my mind that I would hopefully one day come to Liverpool,” he said.
“There was a chance before, but at the time it didn’t work for both sides.
“When there was interest again last year, I was very interested in coming to Liverpool straight away in my head, but you also have to see what the plan for you is and how you will fit into it.
“The story of me playing as them on my PlayStation is true, sometimes it was as other teams, but most of the time I was Liverpool.
“Back then, I could never have imagined I’d be here one day, but it was always a dream of mine and you have to try and follow them.”
