Mohamed Salah’s season seems to be getting better and better with every passing week.
This week, he was busy scoring twice and assisting twice in Liverpool’s 5-2 victory over Roma in the Champions League semi-final.
It took his tally to a ridiculous 43 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions in what has been a record-tumbling season for Salah.
One of the many records that Salah has broken is to be the first player to be named Premier League’s Player of the Month three times in one season, scooping the accolade in November, February and March.
As a result of those awards, Salah was also given a special FIFA card on each occasion to represent his improved stats.
After winning the Player of the Month in March, the ‘Egyptian King’ was presented with a 93-rated card.
You’d think he’d be quite happy with that, wouldn’t you?
SALAH WAS FAR FROM IMPRESSED WITH HIS FIFA CARD
However, there’s one aspect of the new card that Salah isn’t too happy with.
“Physically is 84,” Salah points out.
“Last time I was 82. So I work in the gym for one month for 2%. No, that’s not possible.”

Of course, after being crowned PFA Player of the Year, Salah received an even better FIFA card.
And this time, he can have no complaints.
Salah boasts 99 pace, 98 shooting, 95 passing, 99 dribbling and 92 physical – making him one of the game’s very best players.

Salah could even be on the cover of FIFA 19 given his ridiculous season.
Back to real life and Salah will just be concentrating on making sure his Liverpool’s side reach the Champions League final.
He certainly did his bit in the first-leg, and his manager Jurgen Klopp called him “outstanding” following that display.
“The first goal is just a genius strike. He’s already scored a few like this – that makes it even more special. It makes it clear it is no coincidence. The second goal was brilliant play… Then he makes the other two goals,” Klopp said of Salah’s performance in the first-leg.
“If you think he’s the best in the world, write it or say it. He is in outstandingly good shape, in world-class shape, 100 per cent. That’s good.
“To be the best in the world you need to do that over a longer period, I think. There are a few others who are not too bad. He is a fantastic player and I’m really happy to have him.”
