Has anyone seen it? Has anyone seen Mohamed Salah?
There are normal players who, once in their normal races, have wonderful stages. But they are just that, stages. Then, everything goes to normal.
There is only one thing that follows: the expectation. The follower does not assimilate the change. Wait for that scorer, dribbler or great goalkeeper who once exited him.
“And if he used to do it before, why not now?”
That said, Mo Salah fits perfectly in this player profile. His 18/19 season was extraordinary, but the beginning of it does not come close to what it was last year.
And no, a shoulder injury does not affect you like that.
The Egyptian is a normal player. He had a great season, but he does not forget all his previous years and what he was: a good player among the normal ones.
Messi, Cristiano, Neymar … He will never get there.
Their fight may be against the Griezmanns, Hazards or others. And not at this level.
He is a soccer player with interesting characteristics: left-handed profile, speed, dribbling and definition ability. Without a doubt, he falls well in almost any workforce in the world. But expect the same results as the previous campaign is unreal.
He had a peak in his career, naturally, the same will go down.
Now, the leagues are also to analyze. The leagues enlarge, or not, an individual figure. Salah, in Italy with Fiorentina and Rome, was spectacular. Not the best player, but quite interesting. The league allowed it, it was slower and its speed stood out.
Show that same speed and self-confidence in the Premier League? That is highlighted. That is to admire.
Aubameyang is a clear example of the influence of the leagues: with Arsenal, he is being as effective as in Dortmund, but he is less showy.
And go that the public likes this last.
Do not expect too much from Salah, in fact, more eyes should point to another that is really good: Roberto Firmino.
