The fit man is Mohamed Salah. Author of 10 goals and 4 assists in 9 matches and especially decisive during major meetings, the Egyptian is walking on water at the moment. Yesterday again, against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, he scored a brace to offer victory to the Reds. With this momentum, Salah goes straight to the record of goals scored by an African in the Champions League, held by a certain Didier Drogba (44 goals).
But last week, Salah tied another record for Didier Drogba, that of the best African scorer in Premier League history. Currently, the two players have 104 pawns and Salah, in the next matches, should surpass the Ivorian legend.
Yesterday, on the set of Canal + for the evening of the Champions League, Drogba revealed that he spoke to Salah when the latter equaled his record. “I sent him a message to congratulate him. I am happy for him. He’s in great shape right now and I hope he will continue. It often happens that our little brothers overtake us. It’s good. Salah is also heading towards another record, that of the best African scorer in the history of the Champions League ”, said the former captain of Elephants of the Ivory Coast, who savored his « first selection » as a consultant Champions League of Canal Plus.
