Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been picked as the best player in the history of African football amidst the continent witnessing the likes of Samuel Eto’o, Yaya Toure, and Didier Drogba.
Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny has chosen Liverpool forward as the greatest footballer in the history of African football.
The Egyptian winger, since his arrival to Anfield in 2017 has enjoyed immense success, winning the Premier League, Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup.
Mohamed Salah has also won the Premier League Golden Boot on two occasions and equally boasts an impressive tally of 119 goals through 191 appearances with the Reds.
On the other hand, the 29-year-old winger has also seen individual accolades come aplenty for him at Anfield, having won PFA Players’ Player of the Year, FWA Footballer of the Year, FIFA Club World Cup Golden Ball, FIFA Puskas Award, among many others.
“Mohamed Salah is a legend now in Egypt and he’s still playing,” Mohamed Elneny told Arsenal’s official YouTube channel.
“We know that legends are usually when they finish their careers but when they’re still playing and people look at you as a legend this is something big.”
“Toure, because he’s a midfielder I know what he’s doing and I know how it’s different because it’s more difficult than a striker. Strikers get the chance to score all the time and midfielders have to do so many things.”
“But of course I go for Mohamed Salah!”
