Mohamed Salah is most dangerous player in world football, says Lampard
The Egyptian is having an incredible debut season at Anfield, scoring 43 goals while providing 15 assists in 47 games across all competitions.
Mohamed Salah will return to the Stadio Olimpico for the second leg of the Champions League semi-finals, after Liverpool managed to take a 5-2 lead to Rome.
Frank Lampard, who played alongside the Egyptian winger for six months at Chelsea, has warned the Italian side from Salah “the most dangerous player in world football”, saying his former club will be nervous to play against him.
“If they play with a high line like they did last week, they’ll be in big trouble. Roma will have issues in how they set up tactically, Mo Salah will have scared them,” Frank Lampard wrote in his Evening Standard column.
“All of Roma’s back three were terrible last week, particularly Juan Jesus, who played on the left-hand side of Roma’s backline.
“Salah is the most dangerous player in world football at the moment and they will be nervous about playing him so soon.
“Their problem is this game will suit Liverpool even more given the counter-attacking style that they play with.”
If the Reds can overcome AS Roma on Wednesday, they will face Real Madrid in the final, after the Spanish giants beat Bayern Munich 4-3 on aggregate.
Mohamed Salah will be hoping to become the only second Arab to lift the Champions League title after Algeria’s Rabah Madjer, who won it with FC Porto against Bayern Munich in 1987.
