"I know him well".

But Totti, who played alongside Salah during the final two seasons of his celebrated 25-year Roma career, believes he still has room to improve and can step it up another gear.

The Egyptian global left Roma and joined the Merseyside club for a fee of €42m (£36.9m, $46.9m) last summer.

Salah's prolific form in front of goal this season is keeping hopes of success this season alive on the red half of Merseyside.

Fortunately, Mané managed to overcome his early season struggles, and his confidence is at an all-time high right now after he fired home a hat-trick in Liverpool's 5-0 victory over Portuguese giants FC Porto in their Champions League round of 16 match last week.

"The coaches help me so much to do that and I also work hard alone after the training sessions".

Salah will hope to reach that next level at some point between now and the end of the season, with Liverpool fighting it out with Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United for a Champions League spot.

"There are more complete teams in the competition", Totti added, "but when you have a player like him, you start to believe anything is possible".

Not everyone agrees with the Italian, however.

Liverpool supporters made a new chant in Salah's honor: "If he's good enough for you / He's good enough for me".

"Salah is not a centre-forward, I don't think he is a player who can score goals consistently over a period of time".

Liverpool will be looking for a win to go second in the table when they welcome West Ham to Anfield on Saturday afternoon. The last time the two sides met the Egypt global bagged two goals helping the Reds defeat the Hammers 4-1 in east London.
