The Replies When Liverpool Signed Mohamed Salah Were Absolutely Terrible
The Twitter replies to Liverpool's signing Mohamed Salah are absolutely horrific takes upon reflection.
The Egyptian winger signed for Liverpool in 2017 and has gone on to become one of the world's best players.
But, when his transfer was originally announced by Sky Sports, many Twitter users were unconvinced and they make for hilarious reading.

Sadly, many have realised the error of their ways and have deleted the tweets, but some have let their bad takes stand the test of time.
Check some of them out below.
Liverpool sign a player who had to move to Italy because he couldn't cut it in the Premier League

Why pay over 30 million for a player who can't handle the pace of the premiership sturrige is so much better I bet Liverpool will sell him

Not having it. Why are Roma selling him ? Because he's shite.

Liverpool's have signed their very own Sissoko :clap::clap::clap:

Mane, Coutinho, Firmino, Lallana etc...
Where is he going to fit in? Quite expensive for a guy where you already have good quality.

Isn't he the lad that couldn't hit a barn door with a shovel while at Chelsea #panicbuy #way2muchmoney

There are even more negative responses to the signing than that, but at the time they weren't poor assertions to make.
Salah's last stint in the Premier League had come at Chelsea but he never got an opportunity to show his talents.
He joined 'The Blues' in 2014 and wasn't fancied by then boss Jose Mourinho.
He only made 19 appearances during his stay in London and moved to Roma on loan in 2015.
The Egyptian impressed in Italy and made his move permanent in 2016.
However, he'd be back in the Premier League in 2017 and immediately set the league alight.
The 27-year-old won the Golden Boot as well as Player of the Year in his first season at Anfield, before helping Jurgen Klopp's men to Champions League glory last year.
Liverpool are now on course to win their first ever Premier League title and are unbeaten in the league this year.
It's fair to say the Salah transfer has worked out as well as he and Livepool could hope.
