​Kenya defender Onyango not worried about Liverpool star Salah - 'I'll deal with him'

Kenya defender Joash Onyango is not worried about facing Egypt forward Mohamed Salah.

The Liverpool ace will be trying to bring his goalscoring form to the international stage during the African Cup of Nations qualifier on Thursday.

But Onyango is confident he and his teammates can subdue the 28-year-old.

Speaking to Goal, he said: "We all know they have arrived with their big-name players, and we all know what Salah can do, he is a good player and we have seen him win matches for Liverpool, but it will be a different ball game, I will deal with him.

"I like to cherish such opportunities because they give me the chance to gauge my level if I am improving or I am still where I am, so I will keep Salah in check, not only Salah but any player Egypt will use to attack us, we will deal with them."
