Gilardino warns Milan of the danger of Mohamed Salah before the Liverpool match in the Champions League

Former Italian star Alberto Gilardino warned AC Milan of the danger of Egyptian star Mohamed Salah, the Liverpool striker.

This is before the expected confrontation that will bring the two teams together next Wednesday evening, in the first round of the Champions League group stage for the current season 2021-2022.

Gilardino told the Italian newspaper, La Gazzetta dello Sport, saying:

“The thing I fear most for Milan is Mohamed Salah, he was my Fiorentina teammate, and I loved Jurgen Klopp.”

The former AC Milan star added:

“Milan will struggle against the Reds, but they will play a great game and they will also know how to create trouble for Liverpool, and coach Stefano Belloy has a lot of experience in dealing with these types of matches.”

On Ibrahimovic’s return against Liverpool, Gilardino said:

“Abra is like a rock, the body is important, but you can only reach this level at his age if you have ambition.”

Mohamed Salah had played for 6 months with the Italian team Fiorentina during the 2014-2015 season, on loan from Chelsea.

Liverpool will play a strong confrontation outside its stadium next Sunday against its host Leeds United in the fourth round of the English Premier League.

Milan hosts Lazio on the same day in the third round of the Italian Serie A.
