Everyone wants to see Salah’s success

The Algerian star Rabah Madjer is clear about his preferred destinations for the Egyptian: “Playing for a great Spaniard would give his career a new boost.” Rabah Madjer, who won the European Cup with Porto and played for Valencia, is still considered the greatest footballer to come out of Algerian football. Madjer, 65, gave an interview to Al Ain Sports in which, among other things, he assessed the future of Egyptian Mohamed Salah, who is not sure whether to continue next season at Liverpool. “Salah is a wonderful player and the pride of all Arabs. Liverpool are a very big team and they helped him exploit his talent, which is what Chelsea couldn’t do before. Renewing his contract would be a beautiful recognition of what he achieved at Anfield, but I personally hope to see the Pharaohs star wearing the jersey of one of the giants of Spanish football, Barcelona or Real Madrid. That way he would give a new impetus to his career ,” Madjer stated bluntly. The former striker also spoke about his favorites to win the Champions League this year: “The competition will be tremendous. I think Manchester City is stronger, I think , because they have a great coach and a lot of quality on the offensive end. But Real Madrid has the greatest tradition in the competition and cannot go unnoticed. It is run by an experienced coach, as well as having a wonderful squad.” 

Information about Madjer

Last year, Madjer was sentenced by his country’s justice to a sentence of six months in prison and a fine of 100,000 dinars (636 euros) accused of falsifying the accounts as co-owner and director of two Algerian newspapers between 2016 and 2019, Al Balagh (The Message) and Al Balagh Erriadhi (The Sports Message). The star had no luck as Algeria coach either, a position in which he lasted just six months after replacing the Spaniard Lucas Alcaraz.
