Ex-Roma ‘keeper Cervone: Salah is phenomenal

Posted on March 19, 2015


Former Roma goalkeeper Giovanni Cervone praised ’s Egyptian winger ahead of Thursday’s crunch Europa League clash between the two Italian sides.

The 22-year-old winger has impressed in his games with the Viola so far since joining on loan from Chelsea last month, scoring 6 goals and assisting twice in 9 appearances.

Giovanni Cervone, a former goalkeeper now working as Lebanon’s goalkeeping coach, spoke with Radio Blu ahead of Thursday night’s clash in Rome, and when asked about the Egyptian international, he said: “Salah’s performances with Fiorentina have been fantastic.” Before adding: “It raises question marks as to why Chelsea let him go in the first place.”

“Salah is just phenomenal, and he proved his worth. He has incredible strength and speed.

“I think it’s weird Chelsea let him go,” he concluded.

Fiorentina will face Roma in a critical game tonight in the second leg of the round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League, after the first leg ended in 1-1 draw at the Artemio Franchi in Florence.
