Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah is at “the right team” and has “the right coach”.

That is the view of Egypt assistant coach, and ex-Spain international full-back, Michel Salgado – who has spoken very positively about the twenty-six year old.

“It’s very difficult to find players who can change games but Mo Salah is that kind of player.” said the former Real Madrid man.

“You can see the responsibility he has when he plays for Egypt, he has 100 million people behind him, and he’s also playing for one the best club teams in the world.

“Being top scorer and most valuable player in the Premier League is very difficult to achieve and he’s a blessing for the Arab and Muslim world.

“I’m really lucky to train with a player like him in my first job as a coach and he’s only twenty-six, he’s got more to show and prove.

“I think he found the right team and the right coach. Jurgen Klopp is able to get the best out of Salah and we’ll work on that with Egypt, too.” he added.

Salgado went on to explain how much of a global star Salah is becoming and used his son as an example of one of the children who idolise the attacker.

“Even my kid, he’s Spanish, but he’s in a school with a lot of Egyptian kids and now his idol is Mohamed Salah.

“That’s important for the whole of football, we need something different so it’s not always Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi, and players from Europe and South America.

“It’s good to have players from different backgrounds.” he finished.
