Micah Richards and Mohamed Salah are forming a friendship after the Egyptian joined Fiorentina on loan
Micah Richard was full of admiration for Mohamed Salah after the on-loan Chelsea forward scored twice to fire Fiorentina to a 2-1 victory over Juventus in the Coppa Italia on Thursday night.
The Egypt international has been proving a point to Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho in recent weeks after the Blues forward joined Fiorentina on loan as Juan Cuadrado left Florence for London in a £23.3m deal on deadline day last month.
The 22-year-old winger has already scored an incredible six goals in seven appearances for the Serie A side following his January transfer window move.
Richards, who moved to Fiorentina on loan from Manchester City last summer, posed with Salah after the African’s heroics against the reigning Serie A champions.
Richards wrote on Instagram: “@mosalah22 this man is on fire!”
The Citizens right-back has endured an injury-hit season, making six appearances and racking up just 274 minutes of Italian top-flight action.
Fiorentina will face Massimiliano Allegri’s Juve side in the second leg of their Coppa Italia semi-final on 7 April.
