Samuel Eto’o played an important role in Mohammed Salah’s meteoric rise. The Egyptian striker arrived in Liverpool last summer and is one of the best players in the club after only 18 months in Anfield.
Mohamed Salah scored 32 goals in the Premier League last season, a record in club history. He also helped Liverpool to qualify for the Champions League final.
Salah has earned a reputation for excellence and his former Chelsea teammate, Samuel Eto’o, believes he has played a key role.
“I hope Salah remembers the day we were together in the locker room at Stamford Bridge after his bad performance,” said Eto’o to Al Kass sports channel. “I asked him to be patient and I said to him: You are a good player and you will become an excellent player. Salah has become this great player and will write his own story thanks to his perseverance and his will. “
Eto’o says it is now time for Salah to aspire to the title of best player in the world. “It all depends on Salah himself. He has incredible skills and is currently playing at a level that allows him to compete for the Golden Ball. “
Samuel Eto’o and Mohamed Salah played together at Chelsea in 2014. The advice of the Cameroonian star would already bear fruit because the Egyptian is about to become one of the greatest African footballers in history.
