With three goals, the Egyptian surpassed the Ivorian to become the Premier League’s highest-scoring African player with 107 goals.

 

With his treble against the Red Devils at Old Trafford, he equaled Fred Howe’s 85-year-old record.

 

Regardless, the former Everton and Middlesbrough striker does not understand why the 29-year-old ex-AS Roma star should be considered the best African to have graced the English Premier League — despite the ‘Yak’ admiring the ex-AS Roma star’s accomplishments in Jurgen Klopp’s squad thus far.

 

Salah is not the greatest African player to ever play in the Premier League. Drogba was unique in that he scored for the sheer joy of it,” Ayegbeni told Goal.

 

“However, you have to give Salah credit for breaking the big legend’s record, which makes him one of the best Africans in the English Premier League, but he is far from the best right now.”
