Mohamed Salah leads the Premier League scorers list once again. The Liverpool FC man has been one of the best strikers in the world for years. Reason enough to finally discuss it on ZEIT ONLINE’s football podcast. In He can kick the hosts dissect his game – and his impact off the pitch.

With his sewing machine steps and his flicks into the far corner, Salah has become the terror of European defenses. But he is not as talented as Kylian Mbappé. “Salah had to take detours, but he worked for it,” says Oliver Fritsch. And Salah found the perfect target in Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp. “The speed, the intensity, the work ethic“, that fits together,” says Christian Spiller. That’s why Fritsch advises: Don’t change clubs.

The two hosts also talk about English fan chants and the Salah effect, i.e. scientifically proven fewer hate crimes against Muslims in Liverpool since Salah played there. “This shows the value of sport,” says Fritsch.

Also in the podcast: Salah’s typical goal celebration, an original sound from Cairo, Mr. X in De Jong fever and a top 5 with Said al-Uwairan.
