The President of the International Football Association “FIFA”, the Swiss, Gianni Infantino, praised the star of Liverpool, the Egyptian international, Mohamed Salah, and described him as a wonderful player.
Infantino is currently in the Egyptian capital, Cairo, where he is attending the General Assembly of the Confederation of African Football (CAF), and last Thursday participated in an exhibition match on the sidelines of the opening of the new headquarters of the Egyptian Football Association.
“Salah is a wonderful player, unbelievable,” the FIFA president told Ontime Sports.
“He is the best for me. I congratulate him for everything he has achieved,” he added.
And he concluded: “Salah, thanks to his exceptional levels, has become one of the top footballers in the world.”
Salah was on a list of 11 nominees for the 2021 FIFA World Player of the Year award, “The Best,” and the winner will be announced next January.
The Egyptian star is also competing for the Ballon d’Or award, awarded by “France Football” magazine for the best player in the world, which will be announced at a ceremony in the French capital, Paris, on Monday.
