Mohamed Salah among top 12 fastest players in Premier League
The 12 fastest players in the Premier League this season have been revealed and Egypt international Mohamed Salah is among them.
Salah had an impressive season with Liverpool, which saw him share the Golden Boot award with Sadio Mane and Aubameyang, as well as helping the Reds finish second with a record 97 points.
The 26-year-old is not only known for his goalscoring ability, but for his blistering speed as well, as he was ranked the 18th fastest player in the Premier League last season.
Whilst Salah moves up in the list his year, he still does not make the top 10, losing the 10th place to Patrick Van Aanholt by only 0.01 km/h.
According to Opta, the fastest speed the Egyptian has reached this season was 34.95 km/h, the same as Huddersfield Town’s Isaac Mbenza, with both players being left off the top 10 list.
