Belgium coach praises Mohamed Salah transformation
The Red Devils will be facing Egypt on June 6 in preparation for the World Cup. Belgium were drawn in group G of the World Cup alongside England, Tunisia, and Panama.
Salah has netted 29 goals in 21 Premier League games thanks to his brilliant form with Liverpool. He is currently one goal away from becoming the highest-scoring African in a single league campaign.
“I think the big change is what he does in the box,” Martinez explained. “I think Salah last year in Roma he was always a threat with his pace and his power.”
Roma witnessed Salah’s early evolution after he managed to score a total of 34 goals and made 24 assists in 83 matches with the Giallorossi. His time in Italy was completely different than his small spell with Chelsea which was then led by Jose Mourinho.
“Now the difference is almost that composure he gets in the box,” he added. “That composure from Salah, to be at the right place at the right time and then make the right call has been the big difference from the Salah we all saw a few seasons ago.”
“I think that’s where Jurgen Klopp deserves huge credit to spot a player that wasn’t the finished article and make him what he is now.”
Salah is currently focusing on the UEFA Champions League given that his team will be facing league leaders Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the championship next Wednesday.
