Former Manchester United and Arsenal player, Mikael Silvestre, has identified Liverpool ace, Mohamed Salah, as currently the ‘most dangerous’ player in the English Premier League, EPL.
Salah is currently the top goal scorer in the Premier League this season with 15 goals in 18 games.
His goal-scoring contributions have helped Liverpool to second spot in the Premier League table.
Salah, however, finished as the seventh-best player in this year’s Ballon d’Or, behind Lionel Messi, Robert Lewandowski, Jorginho, Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante and Cristiano Ronaldo, but Silvestre doesn’t agree.
“Mo Salah for sure, no question about it,” Silvestre told GOAL, when asked about the deadliest [most dangerous] player in the Premier League.
“Right now, he is up there for sure. Ignore his Ballon D’or place, I love Messi but for him to be 1st, Cristiano 6th and Salah 7th? On current form right now, Mo Salah is in the top three for sure.”
Silvestre also named Salah as one of his favourites African footballers alongside Liberia legend and current president, George Weah.
“Apart from Salah, it has to be George Weah. He played in France, for us to watch him for Monaco, then PSG was amazing,” he added.
Salah is expected to play for Egypt at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in January.
