Quotes from Mohamed Salah
”I wanted to play at the top level in Egypt. But in Europe, I didn’t expect this. But when I played in the first team in Egypt, I said ‘why don’t you play in Europe? You should play in Europe’. Then when I played in Basel, I said ‘let’s go to a bigger club’.” – Mohamed Salah.
“My first successes were at the same time as my family having to make sacrifices. It was a very difficult time for me. I used to leave the house early in the morning and I used to come back home very late. I was forced to take five buses to reach my club.” – Mohamed Salah.
