It has been an incredible week for Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah. On Monday he was named the BBC African Player of The Year then on Tuesday, he won Liverpool’s Player of the Month and Goal of the Month awards.
Now the Egyptian has picked up the Premier League Player of the Month award and in the meantime, received one of the most overpowered FIFA cards in recent history.
Originally the card was discovered in FUT concepts by a number of users and images soon emerged online, with the internet going mad for this magnificent beast.
Salah’s stats are something to behold – 96 pace, 92 dribbling and 87 shooting will break plenty of controllers in the coming weeks, but the fact that he has a 88-rated Striker card will be a huge plus for gamers.
Ladies and gentlemen, say hello to the most overpowered card in FIFA 18:
Just look at those stats. 98 attacking position, 94 finishing, 92 agility, 93 ball control, 93 dribbling and 87 stamina is a FIFA player’s dream, not to mention the 4* skill moves and 86 vision.
There was a time, however, when Mohamed Salah couldn’t hit a barn door and during ‘that’ baron spell at Chelsea, Didier Drogba has revealed the heartbreaking text messages he would receive from Mohamed Salah.
After enduring a tough stint at Stamford Bridge, Salah rediscovered his form at AS Roma. He produced heroics in the Serie A, with Liverpool subsequently snapping him up in the summer for a reported £36.9 million.
And he’s delivering by creating and scoring goals.
“He’s unpredictable he can dribble past you easily and he has got stronger and he can score goals,” the Chelsea legend told BBC.
“There was time when he was texting me: ‘I don’t score, I don’t know why.’ I said: ‘It is just a matter of time and confidence.’
“When you have the confidence, everything can happen and you can see now that he is scoring goals.
“I saw how he improved through the years. He had to go to Italy to perform and then come back to England show that he is the player we always believed he was
“What he has done with the national team as well being able to qualify the country in a very difficult game I think he deserves it.
