Samuel Eto'o shares a joke with Didier Drogba

Former Barcelona and Inter Milan striker Samuel Eto'o has made a big Mohamed Salah claim following the Egyptian's impressive start to his Liverpool career.

Salah who has enjoyed a staggering start to his Liverpool career bagged his 22nd Premier League goal of the season in the win over Southampton. His effort curled smartly around Saints keeper Alex McCarthy, leaving him a goal behind Tottenham’s Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot.

Three-time UEFA Champions League winner Eto’o believes it’s just a matter of time before Salah succeeds Jordan Henderson as Liverpool captain.

"He will not scream at you to do this or do that but people like him command respect.

"His attitude off the pitch also makes him a natural leader. He can grow into a captain there." Eto’o told The Sun

Ex-Chelsea hitman Didier Drogba also agreed with Eto’o’s assessment of Salah.

The former Chelsea and Roma forward will be hoping to get on the scoresheet once again when Liverpool face Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday night.
