Egyptian attacking midfielder Mohammed Salah is receiving praise from another legend of his country – Ahmed Mido.
When Salah scored two goals in the game against Tottenham Hotspur, he broke the record held by Mido of being the top Egyptian goal scorer in the Premier League.
And Mido is backing Salah to go well in front of that record – and even reach a century of Premier League goals.
“I felt proud after Salah reached my number of goals, and I think he can reach 100 goals easily,” said Mido.
“Salah is on top form, he is strong and fast I’m sure he will score more goals and break more records in the English Premier League.
“Now he is playing with a very big side, and I want him to focus more and more with the Reds so that he can make history.”
