Premier League legend and former Chelsea hitman Didier Drogba has delivered a warning to the rest of the top-flight by saying that Liverpool attacker Mo Salah will only get better.
It’s news that will strike fear into the 19 other sides in the division who have already struggled to contain the Egyptian this term.
The 25-year-old forward has ripped the Premier League apart this season after only arriving at the club from AS Roma last summer in a deal worth £36.9million and he has become an instant hit.
Vying for the player of the season award with Kevin De Bruyne, the Reds forward has notched up an impressive 40 goals and 13 assists from 45 outings.
It’s no surprise that the African and PFA Player of the Year is reportedly wanted by Real Madrid and is earning plaudits from all directions, including Drogba.
Writing on his Instagram account, as quoted in The Sun, Drogba wrote: “It was just a matter of days before this guy put my goal record as number one African top scorer in the Premier League to bed.
“So proud of you little brother Mohamed Salah, continue to put our continent as high as you can!
“Much love and blessings, like I said before the best is yet to come.”
Football Insider verdict:
While that’s brilliant news for Liverpool that there is still more to come from Salah, it’s a massive worry for the rest of the Premier League as Salah has shown he can score against anyone in the division. What the Egyptian international has done this season is beyond what anyone would have envisaged after his stint at Chelsea ended in disappointment. If anyone knows a decent attacker, it’s Drogba – the ex-Chelsea centre-forward scored 164 goals in 381 appearances for the Blues which means that unless you’re a Liverpool fan, you should all be worried.
