The Reds forward has become one of Europe’s top attacking players although Cameroon’s captain does not think he’s one of the very best in the world.
Egypt star Mohamed Salah “doesn’t impress” Cameroon captain Vincent Aboubakar, who has claimed that France international Kylian Mbappe is on a different level to the Liverpool forward.
What’s been said?
“I see him as he was before,” Aboubakar told RFI. “He’s having a great season in the Premier League, helping his country to advance in this competition (Afcon). I wish him a lot of luck. May the best man win!
“I’m not very impressed with him. I say it clearly because I am an honest person and I have my own way of seeing things. If he impressed me, I would say so. But he doesn’t impress me much.
“He’s a good player, he scores a lot but he doesn’t produce a lot of stuff in the game. Of course he does good things in the Premier League because he’s been in a team for years.
“He is a good player but not at the level of someone like Mbappe.”
