Miguel Veloso: Mohamed Salah is classy
The Ukrainian giants will have to host the Viola in their first game which is scheduled on the 16th of April in the Olympic stadium in Kiev, and the Portuguese international was full of praise on the Egyptian winger.
“Mohamed Salah is showing classy performances in his games,” Veloso told Tutto Mercato Web on Monday.
“I am really surprised he [Salah] has accustomed himself to the Italian football in a very short time,” he added.
Mohamed Salah is instrumental in Fiorentina’s Europa League campaign thus far, having scored against Spurs in the round of 32, before producing a spectacular performance against AS Roma in the round of 16 – a performance that made Walter Sabatini, AS Roma’s football director, publicly admit his regret not to sign the Egyptian winger.
It’s well worth mentioning that this is not the first time Salah receives praise from fellow players as Drogba, Hazard, Ba and others heaped praise on the Egyptian star following his display against Juventus earlier this month. Salah’s teammates Mario Gomez, Milan Badelj, and Stefan Savic were also full of praise of Salah.
