Four years after arriving at Liverpool, Mohamed Salah scored his 100th Premier League goal on Sunday.
Mohamed Salah Africa’s top scorer in Premier League history, it’s like it was done. Already scorer of 2 goals this season in the league with Liverpool, the Egyptian southpaw opened the scoring for the Reds on Sunday against Leeds to reach the symbolic 100 goals mark in PL.
The 29-year-old is only 4 goals away from Didier Drogba, the former star scorer of Chelsea and the Ivorian Elephants, number one African for now. Salah is ahead of his teammate healthy mane (97 goals), Togolese Emmanuel Adebayor (97 goals) and Nigerian Yakubu Aiyegbeni (95 goals), passed through Middlesbrough and Everton.
The double African Ballon d’Or (2017 and 2018) has other individual records in the sights, since it is 20 goals behind Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool legend. To reach the top 10 in history, led by Alan Shearer (260 goals), he will have to catch up with a Michael Owen with 150 goals.
