Ex-Viola player Robbiati: Salah not selfish like Cuadrado
Former Fiorentina player Anselmo Robbiati talked about Mohamed Salah and compared the Egyptian winger with Juan Cuadrado ahead of the club’s Europa League second leg match against Tottenham.
The 22-year-old Chelsea player, who joined the Viola this month on loan until the end of the season, played 4 matches with the team so far – 2 of them as a starter – and he has already assured his quality after scoring twice and providing 1 assist.
Robbiati was talking to the microphones of IlSussidiario.net as he discussed the upcoming second leg against Spurs: “It will be an unpredictable game. Both teams play good football and it will be a good game. I want Viola to be more careful than the last match of Sunday against Torino, but also the British team is very good defensively.”
He then added: “Offensively I think Montella will rely on Salah and Gomez, perfect for this type of game.”
Regarding Salah, the former Fiorentina and Napoli midfielder continued saying: “Compared to Cuadrado, the Egyptian is not selfish. I am confident for the qualification of Fiorentina although Tottenham will have its chance.”
“If I have to make a prediction I see the purple with a 51% chance of going through,” he concluded.
Fiorentina only need a 0-0 draw against Spurs in the second leg of the Europa League round of 32 tie, after they managed to achieve a positive 1-1 away result last Thursday in London.
