With 154 goals in 252 appearances, Salah surpasses Aiyegbeni, who ranks fifth among African footballers with the most goals in the Premier League.

“Salah is not world-class in my opinion. He is not very skillful with the ball, and a significant portion of his goals are merely fortunate.”

Aiyegbeni further added, “The Premier League’s top African players include Okocha, Drogba, Kanu, Yaya Toure, Emmanuel Adebayor, and Sadio Mane.”

    Salah is not a world class player?
    I see a little Everton vs Liverpool rivalry going on here. The Yak as a former Toffee no wan acknowledge Salah.
    But this one is a hard sell.

  • Aiyegneni you are wrong. Salah is world class.
