Which teams has Mohamed Salah played for?
Very much like the evolution of formula one racing, the career of Salah started slow, but he was quick to rise up the ladder based on his excellent skills. He began his senior career with El Makawloon in 2010 first as a substitute, but soon became a regular member of the team based on his excellent performance. He continued to be an integral part of the team’s success for the next two years.
In 2012, Salah was picked up by Basel on a four-year contract. The club is part of the Swiss Super League, and Salah was quick to make a mark from the very beginning. While he continued to help the team advance in the local leagues, he was also scoring goals in the Europa Cup and against top Premier League teams like Chelsea and Tottenham Spurs. With the help of Salah, Basel was able to win the Swiss Super League in 2012-13, coming in second in the Swiss Cup.
It was at this point that several Premier League teams were watching Salah, but the one to make a move was Chelsea who managed to get him at a reported price of £11 million. Although Salah started as a substitute, he was quick to score goals whenever the opposite arose. Nevertheless, the team loaned him to Fiorentina in the very next season for 18 months.
Even though Fiorentina was interested in having Salah stay with them after the loan period, he chose to go to Roma instead. First, on loan, he became a permanent member soon enough in 2016-17.
Next year, however, Salah was back playing in the Premier League with Liverpool. He signed a long-term agreement with the club for an estimated £42 million with a clause for an increase later. As part of Liverpool, Salah has evolved into a truly international player scoring goals left, right, and centre in games and winning the Golden Boot award a few times.
