Didier Drogba has hailed Mohamed Salah’s emergece as “a leader” at Liverpool FC.
The Egypt international moved to Anfield in a £39m deal from Serie A giants AS Roma in the summer transfer window to smash Liverpool FC’s transfer record.
Salah’s move to the Anfield outfit was met with some skepticism given his underwhelming spell at Chelsea in 2014 before he went on loan to Fiorentina and then AS Roma.
The 25-year-old became one of Serie A’s top creative players in the Italian capital following his permanent switch to AS Roma in the 2016 summer transfer window.
Salah has wasted no time leaving his mark on the Liverpool FC side with an incredible 14 goals in 16 games in the Premier League to lead the division’s goal-scoring charts.
The African forward has also netted five goals in six Champions League games to help the Reds to set up a last-16 meeting with Portuguese club FC Porto.
His former Chelsea team-mate Drogba has hailed Salah’s development at Anfield following a breathtaking start to his Liverpool FC career.
He’s becoming a boss and a leader – we’ve seen it in the national team and seen it at Liverpool,” Drogba told the BBC.
“I can tell by his celebrations that he knows what he’s doing now, he’s not going crazy but just sticking his tongue out to say, ‘yeah it’s me’.”
Salah was named the African footballer of the year ahead of Sadio Mane, Naby Keita, Victor Moses and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang earlier this week.
