Incredible Salah. Performance over the Suarez level
The best Liverpool player of this season is Mohamed Salah, who transferred from Roma for €42 million in summer 2017. The Egyptian scored 14 goals in 18 games in all tournaments. He is recognized as the team’s best player in August and September. He would be the best in October as well, but Liverpool fans decided to support Dejan Lovren. They chose Salah the best week player in the Champions League first and third rounds.
Salah performance turned out better than Suarez
Even Luis Suarez did not begin so well in Liverpool. The Uruguayan came to the team in winter 2011. He scored 4 goals in the first half-season, and 17 goals during the first full season. Salah will definitely bypass him, most likely, already this calendar year.
Moreover, no footballer has scored more than 14 goals for a season for Liverpool since Suarez left. Salah has 14, and it’s only the beginning of December. There are clubs in the Premier League where all the players in total scored less than one Salah. He has got 9 goals in the league, Huddersfield has 8, Swansea 7 and Crystal Palace 6.
Mohamed is praised by coaches, colleagues and press
Compliments to Salah fly from everywhere. “He has matured and added in everything,” says Jurgen Klopp. Diego Maradona offered to give Salah a prize as the best African player of the year. He added: “Mohamed showed himself in a great way in Roma and Liverpool, he deserves the award.” Edin Dzeko says that although Roma miss Totti, Salah would be very useful to them.
First steps in the Premier League
If someone doesn’t remember, that is not the Salah’s first appearance in the English Premier League. Chelsea bought Salah from Basel for £11 million in January 2014. Mohamed played less than 20 matches with Mourinho for a season and a half, and was sold to Roma. The fans criticize Jose about the Salah’s transfer now almost as often as they have done about Lukaku and De Bruyne. “I was glad to come to Liverpool, and from the very beginning I felt confident,” says the forward. – I spent two great seasons in Roma, but I was sure I would return to England. That was my plan.”
Kutepov about Salah
Ilya Kutepov said Salah runs as a fast train Moscow – St. Petersburg after the Spartak vs Liverpool match in Moscow. The Egyptian team will come to the World Cup this summer. So Russia will be able to look again at the player who moves like an intercity train, and scores more than Suarez.
