After an astonishing appearance that availed him two goals against Southampton, Salah officially became the Premier League’s top scorer with 9 goals in his pouch, outnumbering Alvaro Morata, Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku who came in behind the Egyptian Pharaoh with 8 goals each. Additionally, last match marked a new score for Salah, as he became the fastest Liverpool player to ever score a total of 12 goals in a season since Michael Owen back in the 2001-2002 season.
Since he joined Liverpool in the last transfer window, our man kept making the headlines in the English media, and with the ongoing dazzling performances he pulls off every week, it was inevitable that he’d keep on stealing the show. So after making history last Saturday, numerous statements and tweets surfaced, praising Salah. Among such praises was a tweet from Liverpool’s former player John Arne Riise, who expressed his admiration for the exceptional nature of the 25-year-old Egyptian.
Excuse me Mr Salah, but what are you made of? What a player we have!!

Riise wasn’t the only person to admire our Egyptian Mo’, Mido expected that Salah will soon move to Real Madrid.
And posts kept coming on..

Mohamed Salah's goals for Liverpool today equaled Jesse Lingard's 14 career goals for United. He's done it in 16 matches. Lingard's on 100k while Salah is on 90k a week. 🤔

There’s no doubt that Salah is among the finest (if not the finest) Egyptian players ever born, and if he managed to attain sustainability, it’s quite possible to witness him nominated to the Ballon d’Or awards in the near future.
