Today, Salah is widely regarded as one of the best players in the world, and former Egypt coach Bob Bradley has now revealed how he once advised the winger to learn from Messi.

"I told him to watch Messi closely so he can improve his performance, and he took my advice.

"Back then, I tried to change his position to play deep as a striker, because he has the speed. He is now one of the best players in the world."

Salah has scored 91 goals and set up another 37 since joining Liverpool in 2016, and helped the Reds win the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup titles along the way.
