Ronald de Boer, the legend of the Netherlands national team, Ajax and the former Barcelona player, said that Ajax was happy to have a great player like Ahmed Hossam “Mido” among its ranks, and he also expressed his great admiration for Mohamed Salah, the star of Liverpool, describing him as “God’s gift to Egypt.”
De Boer spoke via FilGoal.com, saying: “Mido had a certain character at the same time with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, they were a certain type of personality, not the type that implements what the coach always says.”
“But he was also a very big player and people love him in Amsterdam for what he did for Ajax,” he continued. “I think he was very proud to wear the Ajax shirt at that time, and I think we are happy because we had a great player like him from Egypt.”
Mido was crowned with Ajax in the domestic treble once and won the league title again in 2010-2011.
Turning to talk about Salah, saying: “As for Salah, what I love about him, with Chelsea, it did not succeed, and everyone thought that this was a higher level than him. He went to Fiorentina, then Rome, and then returned to Liverpool.”
He went on to praise: “What I love is that he never gave up, tried to strengthen his weaknesses, kept fighting, and now he is one of the best strikers in the world, he did an incredible job at Liverpool, I hope he continues that, we thought he was the type of player who would do that maybe For two weeks or a month or two after that they disappear. “
“What I love about him now is that throughout the season he is unbelievable and does a great job, he continues at the highest levels and this is what I love about him. It is not that he plays an exceptional day and the other you do not see, every week he is a very important player for Liverpool, and something I love about him very much,” he said. He is very professional and I think it is God’s gift to Egypt. “
Salah won with Liverpool the Premier League, UEFA Champions League, European Super League and Club World Cup titles.
FilGoal.com also tried to ask him about a scene in which his hero reminded us a lot, the Egyptian penalty kick against the Netherlands in the 1990 World Cup, to say de Boer: “It is wonderful to score a permanent goal against the Netherlands, we enter every tournament as candidates and I can understand if you scored a goal against The Netherlands did the same. “
