Former AS Roma midfielder Francesco Totti believes that Mohamed Salah is one of the best players in the world and only has room in his game to improve.
The Egyptian left AS Roma last season, joining Liverpool for £37 million and scored a then career-best 19 goals and provided 12 assists for teammates. Had the Egyptian matched such number this season, he would have been applauded and called a successful signing.
Having scored 30 goals and set up 10 for his new colleagues on Merseyside, Salah has been branded world class and is rivaling the likes of Harry Kane, Lionel Messi and Neymar for the title of Europe’s most prolific goalscorer this term.
And Francesco Totti firmly believes that his former teammate is one of the world’s best players despite having room to improve.
Totti said of his former teammate: “The level he is playing at, at the moment, he is one of the best players in the world – and I think he can and will get even better.
“I know him well. He is a good friend and wants to keep improving, to keep getting better as a player.
“He does all the right things, he trains hard, he works hard, he listens to the coaches – that’s why, as good as he is playing at the moment, I think maybe there is even one more level in him.”
Salah recently revealed that his incredible numbers this season are thanks to the advice and tactical advice that he has received from Jurgen Klopp, meaning that he is closer to the goal at all times.
“With the boss here, I play a little bit closer to the goal, more so than at any other club or more than any of my other coaches have asked me to,” Salah told Liverpool’s official matchday programme.
With 22 goals in the Premier League alone, Salah’s consistency in front of goal has been absolutely phenomenal.
His form has played a large part in the Reds’ pushing further up the table this season, sitting just two points behind second-place Manchester United who play Chelsea this weekend.
