Fiorentina players


striker has described his Egyptian teammate as a “great player”, adding that he is the replacement the Viola needed for the now departed Juan Cuadrado.

Both Salah and Gomez have scored against Tottenham to help Fiorentina advance to Europa League’s round of 16, where they’ll face fellow Serie A side AS Roma.

“Salah is a great player and I knew that,” Gomez told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I know him from his days at Basel and when Mourinho signs a player he must be a very strong one for sure.” he added.

The former Bayern Munich striker then talked about Juan Cuadrado and how Salah is becoming a reference point for Fiorentina

“Juan [Cuadrado] is a great champion. We needed someone like Salah to replace him. His pace can help any team, Roma also play well by launching Gervinho. We remain to be a team that likes to set up the game, with Salah we have more options.”
