Former Tottenham Hotspur and Egypt striker Mido has advised Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah to leave Merseyside for the Spanish capital and Real Madrid in the summer, also labelling him “the best player in the history of Egyptian football”.
The 25-year-old has light up the Premier League this season, netting 30 goals after returning to England’s top-flight following a spell in Italy, leaving former club Chelsea to massively rue their decision to sell the forward two years ago.
“Real Madrid could use his strengths”
Salah reached the remarkable landmark of 30 Premier League goals in one season on Saturday as he netted in the Reds’ 3-0 win over Watford.
The goal helps him to restore his lead of five goals over Tottenham striker Harry Kane, who was controversially accredited a goal against Stoke City last weekend.
Meanwhile, Mido has told Salah to leave Liverpool this summer should Los Blancos come calling.
“I know many people will disagree with this, but in my opinion, Mohamed Salah is the best player in the history of Egyptian football.
“Salah’s mentality is much better than mine. When I was young I did not get any advice, and this would come to hurt me later on.
“We could see how strong he was mentally with the way he handled himself when he didn’t play at Chelsea.”
Speaking about potential interest from Spain, the 35-year-old added:
“Real Madrid want him, and we have all seen the poor performances of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema with the 4-4-2.
“I was afraid that Salah might fail at Liverpool, but I think he is ready to jump to the next level. Real Madrid would be able to use his strengths.”
