Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown applauded Egypt’s international Mohamed Salah and claimed that the young Pharaoh can be a nightmare for Premier League defenders.
Salah، who scored three competitive goals since his arrival from AS Roma، recently won Liverpool’s Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for August and has been enjoying an impressive start with the Reds.
“He was irresistible. Boy has he got wheels! He is a left footed player playing on the right which is always a nightmare” Keown who won 10 honors with Arsenal told BBC Sport. “He wants the ball for fun. He’ll threaten the back of you whenever he can.”
Liverpool currently occupy the fifth league spot with seven points after suffering a harsh 5-0 defeat to Manchester City، a match which Salah started. The club’s next game will be against Spanish outfit Sevilla in the Champions League group stage on September 13.
