Following his two strikes in the Champions League, Salah was noticeably muted and seemingly refused to celebrate.
Salah moved to Liverpool FC in a £39m deal from AS Roma in the 2017 summer transfer window in what looks like a bargain following his brilliant return of 50 goals in 65 games for the Reds. The Croatian has always felt like a player Klopp is prepared to use while he waits for someone better to come along.
The former Liverpool midfielder and BT Sport pundit believes that Jürgen Klopp was hamstrung by a thin roster last season, but now has the tools at his disposal to compete on both fronts.
"Liverpool's next two matches, against the group's minnows Red Star, are therefore crucial to the Reds' chance of a place in the knockout phase".
Backing the £39m Brazilian to shine, Liverpool's German boss told the Daily Mirror: "We already made the decision he is the right player, yes - when we signed him". He was very aggressive and everything was there. Against Arsenal in the Europa League group stage last season, Red Star played out two games so tiresome they may as well have been broadcast in sepia.
"It's hopefully not the last time [all three score in the same game]", Klopp continued. A second goal from Salah early in the second half and a late effort from Sadio Mane put the result beyond any doubt as Liverpool walked away comfortable winners.
"He is now used to what we need him to do and that is good for him and good for us".
Salah has begun this current season - one in which an unbeaten Liverpool sit joint top of the Premier League table alongside Manchester City - in slightly less electrifying form.
Salah has scored in both games for Liverpool since the worldwide break, having netted the only strike of the game at the weekend against Huddersfield, having not scored since a 3-0 win over Southampton in September prior to the break.
