Salah empirically defends his claim that “I am the best in the world in my position”
The 29-year-old Egyptian striker defended his commented phrase “I am the best in the world in my position” by appealing to numbers: “I always concentrate on my work, I give my best and my numbers are the best proof of my words”.
Those numbers that Salah uses to try to prove empirically that he is the best footballer in the world in his position are his 30 goals (22 in the Premier League and 8 in the Champions League) and 16 assists of this season.
On his way of approaching and understanding football, Salah, a former Al Mokawloon, Basel, Chelsea, Fiorentina and Roma player, explains that “I like to always create a new challenge for myself, work in a different way and make a difference. That is my duty”.
Salah doesn’t forget: “I remember the last Champions League final against Real Madrid as if it were yesterday”
Salah admitted to ‘beIN Sports’ that “I remember the last Champions League final against Real Madrid as if it were yesterday”.
“I feel very excited to face them again in the final against Real Madrid. We want to do well this time. When I left the field in the last final, it was sad for me, but I had to accept it and move on. That’s why we won the Champions League a year later,” said the Egyptian striker.
