Premier League

A brilliant achievement in 129 years by an African player

A brilliant achievement in 129 years by an African player


Mo Salah, Egyptian football team captain and Liverpool Football Club top striker has reached a milestone of becoming the fastest player in the entire history of Liverpool Football Club to reach 100 top-flight league goals. It took him 150 League games, which is one quicker than Roger Hunt (152) and fewer games than any other player in the club's 129-year history.

Also, Sallah has won the award of Player of the Month three times in a season, making him the first player to do so. He has been hailed as one of the greatest winger to ever grace the English Premier League and arguably the best player in the league currently.

Even Liverpool’s coach Jürgen Klopp seems to be in agreement having declared Salah as one of the best goalscorers he has ever seen in football, not only in English football.

Born on Mohamed 15 June 1992 in Nagrig, Egypt, Salah Hamed Mahrous Ghaly is an Egyptian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Liverpool and captains the Egypt national team. Considered one of the best players in the world, he is known for his finishing, dribbling, and speed. 

The Egyptian talisman has taken to the social media to thank his fans saying; “You, the fans, keep me going. You give me more strength than I think you’ll ever know.”

Sallah was once with Chelsea Football Club before joining Liverpool. The 29 year old stirker signed a 5 year / £52,000,000 contract with the Liverpool F.C., including an annual average salary of £10,400,000. In 2021, Salah earned a base salary of £10,400,000, while carrying a cap hit of £10,400,000.

However, there are Liverpool fans who rue Sallah’s tendency to miss good chances for goal scoring. Hence, they don’t seem to make much of Sallah’s achievements; stating that with all the chances that he gets on the field of play, Salah should be ranked very high if he learned how to shoot with his right foot and put away easy chances.
