Salah joined Liverpool from Roma in June for an initial fee of £36.9 million and the winger scored on his debut in the enthralling 3-3 draw away to Watford today.
The Egypt international disclosed that he has fond memories of controlling the virtual versions of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.
Salah told Sky Sports: “It is a great club. It was a dream for me when I was young to play here one day.
“When I had the chance to come, I was thinking about whether I should stay in Rome or move here but because when I was young, it was a dream to me, I took the decision to come back.
“I would play as Liverpool on the PlayStation so I am happy to be here now. I was playing with a team like Steven Gerrard, Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher. I liked the team and the way they were playing. I was seven or eight years old so I was playing just to enjoy myself.
“I’m always looking for where I can improve myself so here, because of the city, because of the fans, you can feel the emotions and everyone wants to win something. Everyone is happy for me and I can feel that, even in the friendly games.
“I am very happy to be here and I would like to help the team so I am very excited to start in the Premier League games and I think we can win something this year together.”
Salah produced some outstanding performances for Roma last season, which earned him his high-profile move to Liverpool.
Prolific in front of goal, Salah scored 15 times in Serie A last campaign, while he also posed a significant creative threat and laid on 71 chances for his team-mates.
Salah will hope that he too can become an iconic figure for Liverpool, with the 25-year-old certainly possessing the ability that could see him idolised by the club’s supporters.
