Salah Under Fire: Yakubu Questions Class, Lovren Defends

Yakubu Doubts Salah’s Star Power: Lovren Claps Back 🤔

Yakubu Aiyegbeni, once a powerhouse on the field, recently shared his two cents on Mohamed Salah, and, well, it’s sparked quite the chatter. He reckons Salah doesn’t hit the mark of ‘world-class’. His take? Salah’s ball skills don’t dazzle, and he chalks up most of those goals to sheer luck. You won’t catch him calling Salah the Premier League’s African GOAT. In his eyes, that title belongs to legends like Okocha, Drogba, Kanu, Yaya Toure, Adebayor, and Sadio Mane.

But hold up, Dejan Lovren, former Liverpool defender and Salah’s ex-teammate, wasn’t about to let that slide. Jumping into the fray with a zinger, he hinted Yakubu might’ve been a tad tipsy during his critique. “Clearly he tried some new drinks,” Lovren quipped on Instagram.

Now, that’s a comeback if I ever heard one. The football world’s buzzing, and it’s not just about goals and matches. It’s about loyalty, legacy, and, occasionally, a splash of humor to keep things interesting.
