Real Madrid head coach Carlo Ancelotti said that Egypt’s Mohamed Salah is indeed the best right winger in the world at the present point in time. The Liverpool star is currently brimming with confidence, having won the award for the 2022 FWA Footballer of the Year.
Ancelotti, who’s with the Real Madrid team on a three-year deal after Zinedine Zidane’s departure, said that it’s a tough job to find a decent right winger and there’s no one as good as Salah in that position.
“I think Salah said in his position he is the best in the world and I think he has reason (to say so) because as a left-sided right winger it is not easy to find that in the world market. So I agree with him. I think that in his position he is the best in the world,” Ancelotti was quoted as saying.
I AM THE BEST
Earlier, the 29-year-old Salah stated that he’s the very best in his position. The veteran said that his numbers are a testament to the hard yards he has put in over the years.
“If you compare me with any player in my position, not only in my team but in the world, you will find that I am the best. I always focus on my work and do my best and my numbers are the best proof of my words. I like to always create a new challenge for me, to work in a different way and to make a difference and that is my duty,” Salah said.
In the 2021-22 edition of the Premier League, Salah racked up 22 goals from 34 appearances. Overall, he has scored 119 goals from 192 matches with his team winning 131 of them.
