In the Champions League match, Tuesday, against Milan, the Egyptian football star scored another goal when he appeared in the return match and dropped the equalizer.
In doing so, Salah has already reached 20 goals this season in 21 games he has played – former Manchester United player Rio Ferdinand admired him.
– a joke
At the BT Sports studio after the AC Milan match, Ferdinand expressed his enthusiasm for the Egyptians.
– The way he grew up and evolved into a player who decides the matches as he pleases. 20 goals before December is an absolute joke, it’s nonsense, says Ferdinand.
The former midfielder refers to Salah’s career. Before moving from Roma to Liverpool in 2016, few would have imagined that the 29-year-old would destroy the Premier League.
He went to Chelsea (in 2014) and obviously didn’t shine, so he had to find a new way to find the level he is at now.
– You see Messi and Ronaldo, you look at Haaland and Mbappe, they are two players I immediately thought were or would become stars, says Ferdinand.
Ferdinand supports former Liverpool and Manchester United player Michael Owen.
– We’ve seen that he almost learns the job down the road. He was a poor goalscorer, a completely natural one, at the beginning of his career with Chelsea and he was better and better.
Shearer: The best in the world
The Premier League’s all-time top scorer, Alan Shearer, is also clearly a fan of Salah. He believes that there is no one in the world better than the right at the moment.
Mohamed Salah is the best in the world right now. Top scorer and best player, Shearer writes in a column the athlete.
– The little magician does his job in the best league in the world and does it against the best teams and in the biggest matches, whether it is Manchester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Everton, Atletico Madrid or AC Milan, he continues.
The former scorer believes that Al Masry has set “new standards” after scoring 20 goals in 21 matches.
I see him playing in a great team with great players around him, but he looks sharp, lively and fresh. There is no doubt on my part that last summer’s vacation helped him in terms of intensity. But since he’s 29, he’s also at the top of his career, Shearer wrote.
