Italy legend and world champion has said that Roma winger is his biggest disappointment in 2015.

Salah has featured for Roma in 19 games so far this season, scoring 6 goals and making 2 assists in all competitions. Moreover, the Egypt international has sustained an ankle injury last November that sidelined him for a month and is yet to find the fine form he was on before that.

“The disappointment of 2015 in Serie A? I would say Salah. After watching what he did with Fiorentina I expected more,” Cannavaro told Corriere dello Sport.

“Maybe he [Salah] is paying for Roma’s current form. I did not expect Roma to pass with such difficulties. I did not expect them to look defeatists like that,”

“I agree that injuries and playing in Champions League did not help them, but they are much dependent on counter attack. The team have few ideas,” he concluded
