One AS Roma legend, Francesco Totti still admires the decision made by Egyptian star Mohamed Salah in 2017. At that time, the 27-year-old winger chose to leave AS Roma and move closer to the Premier League club, Liverpool.
Mohamed Salah joined AS Roma in the 2015 summer transfer window. Totti himself was still the captain of Gialorossi. After performing brilliantly with the Serie A giants, Salah was bought by Liverpool in the 2017 summer transfer window.
Initially, many doubted his work with the Marseyside team, because he had been labeled a failure while in Chelsea’s uniform. But unexpectedly, Mohamed Salah scored so easily and managed to become the Premier League’s top scorer along with Liverpool.
Not just looking slick, last season Salah led Liverpool to become a European Champions League champion and become the Premier League’s top scorer. Totti feels happy with the success of Salah. He still admires the best decision taken by the player three years ago.
“If Salah survives in Rome, it is almost impossible for him to win the Champions League. However, after moving to a new club that has won many tournaments, he has more chances to become champions.”
I am happy for him, because he is an extraordinary player. He made a big jump from Rome to Liverpool which no one expected. He is now a player who changes any game at any time, “Totti told Kingfut.
Not like when he was still in Chelsea, Salah was so moncer and consistent with Liverpool. So far, the former Fiorentina player has scored 34 goals in 83 appearances for AS Roma before moving to Liverpool with a tag of around 37.8 million pounds.
In addition to the European Champions League trophy, Salah also won the European Super Cup and Club World Cup with Liverpool. This season, Salah has a great chance to taste the Premier League title.
Because, Liverpool lead the current standings with a 19-point advantage over the nearest rival, Manchester City. Jurgen’s troops were even unbeaten in 24 matches, with 23 wins won.
