Cúper: I monitored Salah before I knew his name
The 59-year-old Argentine manager said that he heard of an Egyptian player who was performing well in Italy and claimed that he wasn’t aware of the Egyptian’s name at the time.
“When talks with the Egyptian Football Association advanced, I began to closely monitor and learn more about Salah,” said Cúper.
“Salah is a very good player, and his performances are developing nicely.”
“Local players or players abroad? Performances on the pitch evaluate players, while results evaluate managers,” Cúper remarked, “I will consult my staff when evaluating players, but the final pick is up to me,” he added.
