Aston Villa midfielder Marvelous Nakamba has claimed that Liverpool forward is one of the best players in the world.
Salah only played a short cameo last night as The Reds beat Villa 2-1. Nakamba was actually already off the pitch by the time the Egyptian entered the fray, but that didn’t stop him from singing his praises in a post-match interview with Stadium Astro.
“He’s not that bad,” laughed Nakamba after being asked for his thoughts on Salah. “He’s one of the best players in the world!”
The 28-year-old claimed that Villa believed that they could get a result from the game against Liverpool, but it wasn’t to be.
“We knew Liverpool would have quality, but I think the technical staff believed in us and gave us the confidence like ‘come on guys, believe in yourself.’
“We have done it before. We went toe to toe with Man City and were a bit unlucky and today again we went against them, toe to toe, and we tried our best. Hopefully, soon we have the luck on our side.”
Despite Salah’s recent struggles in front of goal, he is still a reference point for many opposition players, as well as his teammates.
