Egyptian captain Elmohamady has praised Mo Salah ahead of the AFCON.
“Salah is now one of the best three players in the world. This is a huge deal for the country and the Egyptian team,” he told a news conference.
“Salah being on any team will help it and be a great addition. Everybody anticipates his performance, so this is a positive thing and a good addition for the Egyptian team.
“As has been said, Salah is one of the 23 players on the list. Each player will help the others.
“We play as one team, but having Salah with us is a positive thing and an important thing for us as a team and as players.”
Salah joined Chelsea from Basel but his first time in England did not go down well with the player going back out on loan to AS Roma.
At Roma, his performances were impressive which led to Liverpool trying to get him back to Anfield. The player became one of the stars at Liverpool as he went on to score record goals.
He is now one of their best players at the club and his praise from the national team captain is surely well deserved.
