FOOTBALL-Nairobi, Kenya 28 December 17:13 GMT
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has revealed that he snubbed signing Mohammed Salah before his move to Liverpool while managing at Ligue 1 side PSG.
“We spoke about the possibility to sign Salah to Paris St Germain when he was playing at Roma,” Emery said as quoted by RTE.ie
“We had some doubts – and then he signed for Liverpool and these doubts he has broken at Liverpool. Now, if you are speaking about the five top players in the world, one is Salah.”
Asked what the specific doubts were, Emery added: “Can he take the performance into one big team?
“For example like PSG in Paris. And today I can say to you… if we signed him, we signed one player in the top five in the world.”
