The Egyptian recently overtook Drogba as the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history, and now leads the way 108 goals in 170 appearances.

Drogba has now insisted that Salah always had the quality but was just unlucky not get any minutes at Chelsea.

"If he continues [like this], he's going to destroy all my records! I want to cry," Drogba told Mehwar TV, as quoted by Kingfut.

"What I've seen during training, and all his teammates will tell you, the quality was there. He just needed time on the pitch to show his talent and his quality.

"He was sad not to contribute [at Chelsea], but he was always good. When you have this kind of intelligence it's just a matter of time before you blow up.

"I remember we spoke a few times when he was at Roma and he was scoring goals, and then he had a moment when he was not scoring and he asked me how to deal with this kind of situation.

"I shared with him a lot of examples and experiences, and how it happened to me and all the strikers."
