international winger Mohamed Salah has made quite an impact since joining ACF Fiorentina on loan from Chelsea last month, scoring six goals and assisting twice in 10 appearances thus far.

Ittihad of Alexandria’s manager , Egypt’s all-time top scorer, believes that Salah’s advantage over former Egyptians who have played in foreign leagues is simply learning ‘from their mistakes’.

“Salah has the opportunity to learn from their mistakes, so that he can keep up with his brilliant performances,” said the 48-year-old coach, before adding: “Salah is a good representative of Egyptian football in Europe.”

“His focus should remain solely on football, he should not be distracted by anything outside the pitch. I know that he is a committed player,” he concluded.

On the other hand, Hossam’s twin brother, Ibrahim Hassan, commented on the current Viola player, saying: “He has created some sort of nationalism; everyone waits for Fiorentina’s games to watch him.”

“He is a player who loves his country, he insists on being successful.

“He should forget any past glory when he plays anywhere to be able to proceed,” he advised the 22-year-old midfielder.
