Mohamed Salah has just recently called the four most difficult goalkeepers he has actually faced across his storied profession.The Egyptian has bet a few of the best and brightest number ones in the world but his toughest top 4 is unlikely to amaze too many.When asked to call the most difficult keeper he has actually dealt with, Salah was not able to do so, rather listing off Iker Casillas, Manuel Neuer, Gianluigi Buffon and Liverpool's own Alisson:
" I can't select one so I'm going to offer you 4," he said. "Casillas, Buffon, Alisson, Neuer. I'm sure there are plenty of other excellent goalkeepers however I am forgetting at the moment. It's difficult to select which one."He added on Buffon specifically: "When I played against Buffon in Italy, he boggled the mind. The feeling when you are up against him, it's fantastic. The career he had winning everything in football, it's incredible."
Salah vs Benfica
The next goalkeeper Mohamed Salah is anticipated to come up against is Benfica's Odysseas Vlachodimos.The two went head-to-head last week as Liverpool took on with Benfica in a Champions League quarter-final tie.
Nevertheless, though Liverpool won that leg 3-1, Salah did not get on the scoresheet and was chased simply 61 minutes on the day.And whilst Salah is expected to play some role in the next meeting in between the pair on Wednesday, it is difficult to see Jurgen Klopp giving Salah the complete 90 as Liverpool have an FA Cup semi-final meeting with Manchester City this weekend.
