Egypt and Los Angeles FC defender Omar Gaber backs Liverpool winger Mohamed Salah to finish as the 2017/18 English Premier League top scorer.
Gaber recently completed his move to the Major League Soccer on a season-long loan from Swiss side FC Basel.
The 25-year-old has praised his national teammate Salah, saying he’s a great player and person.
“I think he’s one of the best players in the world now. He had a very good season with Roma, and he’s doing even better with Liverpool now,” Gaber told ESPN.
“Many people did not expect that he would do as well as he is doing now. I am so proud of him. I love him so much.
“I think he will be top scorer in the Premier League.”
The former Zamalek defender also revealed that the mood is high in Egypt after qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup since 1990.
“It’s been 28 years since Egypt last made it to the World Cup. And I am only 25 now, so I have never seen Egypt at the World Cup!,” he adds.
“We are so proud and happy because we made the people of Egypt happy.
“We are excited and happy to be going to the World Cup.”
