Mohamed Salah has always been our Egyptian King, well ever since his arrival to LFC in 2017. He became an instant fan favorite with Reds worldwide. Even more so when he finished his first season with Liverpool with 44 goals!
The truth is, Mo has always been praised as a top player by anyone close to Liverpool, but he was originally labeled as a "one-season wonder" by opposing fans fans. That one season turned into two, then three, and so on. Now Mo is finally receiving the recognition he rightfully deserves from the whole soccer world. Us Reds can sit here and proudly say "I told you so" to all those who didn't believe us!
Salah's performances this campaign have earned the Egyptian heaps of praise, and have deservedly pushed him into the conversation for the best player in the world. It's not hard to see why. His contributions have been crazy, leading Liverpool towards another title charge and helping the Reds win all six Champions League group games in the so-called "group of death."
Let's take a look at some of his unbelievable club stats this season:
- 14 league goals in 16 games.
- 9 assists in 16 league games.
- 7 goals in 6 Champions League games.
- 6 MOTM performances.
Mo Salah has already entered Liverpool's history books for multiple records, and that's only after four full seasons at the club. Let's take a look at some of his club and league achievements:
- 10th on LFC's all-time goalscoring list.
- Fastest Liverpool player to hit 100 Premier League goals.
- Highest scoring African player ever in the Premier League.
These stats speak for themself, but if that hasn't convinced you of the greatness of Mo, then let me present some quotes from fellow Reds fans!
"King." All that is needed to be said! 👑
"Five-season wonder." I love this little dig at those who doubted Salah from the start!
"Best player in the world 🇪🇬👑" Are there many people who can argue against this statement?
