Mo Salah further cemented his status as one of European football’s best attackers tonight by absolutely destroying one of Italian football’s most distinguished defenders.
Salah and his Liverpool team-mates travelled to Naples for this evening’s Champions League opener against Carlo Ancelotti’s free-flowing Napoli side, as the Reds look to defend the European crown won against Spurs on June 1.
And Jurgen Klopp’s men got off to a bright start, taking the game to their hosts in the opening stages, which led to Salah absolutely rinsing Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.
The Metro, among other tabloids, has linked Koulibaly with a sensational £90 million move to Manchester United, but he certainly won’t be looking forward to facing Mo Salah again anytime soon:
We all know how quick and skilful Salah can be, but to simply knock over a player of that size and experience? Pretty remarkable, eh?
This season’s Champions League Final will be in Istanbul – but will Liverpool make it all the way to successfully defend their trophy?
