Montella: Messi is the only player faster than Salah
Fiorentina have advanced to the Europa League’s quarter-finals after beating Roma 4-1 on aggregate, with the Egypt international delivering another quality performance and hitting the woodwork twice.
“Salah-Cuadrado? So far we had the better deal,” Montella told Sport Mediaset.
“We already knew Salah’s characteristics, but honestly I didn’t expect him to be that decisive for us and have such a fast impact in Italian football,” he added.
“He [Salah] is one of the fastest players I’ve ever seen, perhaps Messi is the only player faster than him with the ball,” Montella concluded.
