Didier Drogba Sends Brilliant Message To Mo Salah After He Breaks His Record

Didier Drogba has paid tribute to Mohamed Salah after the Egyptian broke the record for the most goals scored by an African in the Premier League season.

The impressive accolade was previously held by Drogba, who won the Premier League Golden Boot in 2009/10 under Carlo Ancelotti after netting 29 goals in 32 games.

Salah, who played with Drogba briefly during his time at Chelsea, has gone goal-crazy in his second crack at English football and scored his 30th league goal of the season in the 3-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.


Drogba, who expected Salah to knock him off his perch at some stage, posted a brilliant message where he expressed his pride at the 25-year old's achievement, and for how wonderfully he is representing Africa.

Salah, who arrived at Liverpool from Roma in £36.9 million deal, is one of the leading contenders for the PFA Player of the Season following a breathtaking season.


He has already broken a slew of records, outscoring the career-best seasons of some of the greats. And two more goals in Liverpool's final four Premier League games will see him add another record to his ever-growing collection.

Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo and Red's Luis Suarez jointly hold the record of scoring 31 goals in a 38-game season but it's looking like Salah will move a level above them.
