AS Roma manager Luciano Spalletti has praised Egypt’s international winger Mohamed Salah, after scoring against Sassuolo in the 23rd round of Serie A on Tuesday.

Salah ended his nine-match goal drought, as he gave his team the lead in the 11th minute with a left-footed strike from the edge of the area. Salah’s goal against Sassuolo secured a 2-0 win for the Giallorossi.

Roma’s manager revealed his delight at Salah’s goal and labelled him ‘great’.

“He’s a great kid who needs enthusiasm and he can take that away from results like these. He scored a cracking goal and deserves credit for that,” Spalletti said.

The 56-year-old Italian manager then declared that he asked Salah to cover on the flanks in order to create much danger on the counter.

“A keen eye for what lies behind the defensive line is a trait that all forwards should possess. Tonight I asked him to cover on the flank because their full-backs tend to push up and to give him space on the counter,” he added.

Roma now occupy the fourth position in Serie A table, with 41 points from 23 matches.

Mohammed Salama is a 20-year-old who fell in love with football since Egypt's AFCON final match against Ivory Coast! Strangely enough an Al Ahly and Al Masry fan locally. In addition, he's a hardcore Bayern Munich supporter.
