Mido declares Liverpool ace Salah 'best player in Egyptian history'

Egyptian legend Mido rates Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah as his country's greatest player.

Mido enjoyed time in England with Tottenham and Wigan Athletic.

“I know many people will disagree with this, but in my opinion, Mohamed Salah is the best player in the history of Egyptian football," Mido said to King Fut.

“Salah's mentality is much better than mine. When I was young I did not get any advice, and this would come to hurt me later on," he continued, when asked about the differences between himself and Salah.

“We could see how strong he was mentally with the way he handled himself when he didn't play at Chelsea."

Mido added: “Real Madrid want him, and we have all seen the poor performances of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema with the 4-4-2.

“I was afraid that Salah might fail at Liverpool, but I think he is ready to jump to the next level. Real Madrid would be able to use his strengths."
