Liverpool's signing Mohamed Salah has matured since leaving Chelsea, according to Reds legend Steve Nicol.
Nicol believes Salah strengthens the Liverpool squad and he claimed the winger has improved drastically since his last unimpressive spell in the Premier League with the Blues.
"Liverpool, particularly now being in the Champions League with more games, they certainly needed more quality and they certainly needed numbers.
"The most important thing is with this signing, last season when Mane went away to the African Nations, whoever came in fell way short of the quality that Mane showed.
Now if Coutinho or Mane or Lallana or anybody else falls out with injury or whatever, the level doesn't drop, that quality is still there. That's the biggest reason why I like this signing.
I would suggest as well, anybody who thinks this is the same Salah who went to Chelsea a few years ago, he's not.
This guy has matured, he's a real pro, he scores goals.
Forget the Salah at Chelsea, this is a guy who got almost a goal every three games in Serie A. This guy's a quality signing."
