Despite doing well at Liverpool, Egyptian and Al Ahly legend, Mohamed Abou-Treika says Mohamed Salah must not be in a hurry to impress at the English Premier League side.
Abou-Treika reckons that Salah's performances for the Reds in the pre-season friendlies have put him under pressure.
Salah scored on four occasions during the Reds’ pre-season summer campaign. His goals came against against Wigan Athletic, Leicester City, Hertha Berlin and Bayern Munich.

“Salah’s brilliant pre-season put him under pressure when the season started. Liverpool fans now consider him one of the team’s stars under Jurgen Klopp,” Abou-Treika told beIN.
Salah netted on Wednesday as the Reds defeated Hoffenheim 4-2 to ease into the Champions League group stage with a 6-3 aggregate win.
“Salah has to liberate himself and not be in a hurry to score goals every game because this will put him under a huge pressure,” adds the legend.
“Salah is a player of a high level and surely is a solid addition to Liverpool, he will become one of the team’s pillars this season.”
Salah will now hope to find the back of the net once again as they welcome Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday, 27 August.
