Xavi Hernandez: Mohamed Salah’s speed ‘incredible’
Barcelona legend and current Al-Sadd player Xavi Hernandez has expressed his admiration for Egypt and Roma winger Mohamed Salah.
In an interview with news outlet The New Arab, the legendary midfielder praised Salah, as well as other African star footballers.
“Among the best Arab players who play in Europe are Salah of Roma, [Yacine] Brahimi of Porto and [Sofiane] Feghouli of Valencia,” Xavi said.
“Salah is a very fast player, sometimes his speed is incredible,” he added.
When asked if Salah is faster than Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, the former Barca captain said “It’s possible. His strength is the speed in which manages to dribble past players.”
Xavi recently praised another Egyptian footballer, Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny, claiming he “deserves to play in Europe”.
