Salah's Determination Sees Him Move Closer To His Dreams This Summer
Seeth thou a man who is diligent in what he does? Well, I know about Mohammed Salah and he is one of those men who has proved his mettle by never throwing in the towel. Thrown out from the squad at Stamford Bridge and sent into exile, the Egyptian forward found refuge at Anfield and since then, he has never walked alone. Picking up his seemingly broken pieces, Salah has risen to become one of the biggest threats any opposing defense will face in recent times. Source His Career in Liverpool has witnessed a sudden surge and the Egyptian legend is now looking forward to lifting the UEFA champions league trophy in few days time. With two major trophies in view for him at Liverpool and with Egypt, there is hope that he stands a chance of being a top contender for the 2019 Ballon d'Or award alongside the likes of Lionel Messi of Argentina. With momentum already building up for the weekend Champions league final against league rivals Tottenham at Madrid, he is hopeful of emerging strong and victorious. Almost Twelve months ago or thereabout, he had watch his dream of lifting the prestigious trophy chartered by Real Madrid in what many described as a painful outing. Picking a shoulder injury that saw him substituted in the first half of that game at Kiev. He may never forgive Sergio Ramos, even if he has, Egyptian may not. But here lies another hope, another possibility and another chance for the Egyptian to redeem what he was deprived of last season. Being in the Champions league final consecutively is a pointer that Salah and Liverpool were no fluke in the last campaign. With Champions league glory, possible Ballon d'Or award, African Cup of Nations and other accolades hovering round the Egyptian, he has made his intention of playing an active role in their clash against Spurs known. For him, he is not only looking forward to winning the European trophy but also to score one or two goals. "It’s not just a dream,” he told BeIn Sports at Liverpool’s media day at Melwood on Tuesday. “I hope it becomes a reality and I score in the final, then win the African Cup of Nations too. I am so happy that I have the chance to play another final. I hope I can play the full game this time. I am very excited for that. I hope we can right what happened last season, get a good result, and win the competition." Liverpool are going into the finals as clear favorites to lift the trophy, but 'am pretty sure Jurgen Klopp will give no room for complacency. Pochetino is no learner and could shock Liverpool if underrated, especially considering how they fought their way back in the semifinals against an Ajax team that sent Madrid and Juventus packing from the tournament. Also, with Egypt being favorites to win the African Cup of nations slated to commerce in June this year, Mohammed Salah could be witnessing the most fruitful summer of his Career. He has so much to hope and play for, and it's only a matter of time before Salah will pick up another award or trophy (hopefully). Life waits for those who survive its stings and Salah's proximity to his career dreams is a reflection that though we stumble and fall, with determination and never giving up, we can still make impact and become the best of ourselves.
