Gervinho: Mohamed Salah trains like “madman”
Gervinho and Salah played together at AS Roma for a one-and-a-half season, and it was the period when the Egyptian established himself as one of the best wingers in the world before joining Liverpool.
During that time, Gervinho watched Salah’s hard work in training and took inspiration from the Egyptian, while also praising him for his work ethic.
“Salah is a tough guy. Always calm and strong, with the mentality of a hard worker,” Gervinho told the Guardian.
“I’ll never forget his training sessions: very high rhythm, pushed like a madman, you watched him in amazement.
“He had a sort of positive effect – you saw Salah and wanted to work harder. Talent and sacrifice,” he added.
Mohamed Salah has been a key player for Liverpool since joining them last season, and has managed to net 52 goals while assisting 20 in 69 games across all competitions.
Meanwhile, Gervinho is currently playing at Italian side Parma and has impressed so far this season, scoring four goals in eight league games.
But unlike Salah, he was criticised during his time in the Premier League with Arsenal before moving to AS Roma in 2013.
