Let me begin with Salah hasn't always been my favorite player alongside Virgil and bobby and I do feel ashamed as a Liverpool fan because I've been calling him overrated due to his inconsistency IRL. This summer I crossed the pond just to travel to Anfield as I've been supporting Liverpool since I was 12 along with Ac Milan. I watched Liv V Ars and Salah was absolutely magical so he became my hero and my new favorite Red. I had told myself "he's gotta be the first big player I buy" and sure enough (if we forget about that sterling I bought and sold for 30k profit and played 10 games with) he was!
Now for my review, when I say I honestly don't doubt this being the most OP card in the game you can genuinely trust my say in that. I first tried him I draft and I fell in LOVE. He would come on at the half due to chemistry and would outscore the Cr7 I had on for 90 Min in only 30 min.
In that draft, I got to use Ronaldo Neymar Sane IF Kdb and some other great players but MAN Salah stole that show and allowed me to win it all, you can compare him to Mbappe which is probably his biggest competitor. I know some people might not take this review seriously but I am telling you from someone who likes to build up then send my striker in behind he fit my playstyle like a glove.
Pace- Rapid, quickest off the blocks no defender is going to catch him but he is definitely not the type of player that will blaze past the entire team, keep in mind this IS his best attribute.
Shooting- So, finishing, it's immaculate if you hold down the right bumper (R1/RB) on his left? goal every time from absolutely anywhere inside the box, on his right though. Not always, but he will let you down. Fortunately, this is his only drawback due to headers being absolutely dead. But long shots are really good when I do take them and the shot power is good Enough with a Hawk. P.s, volleys are alright and he takes my pens and hasn't missed one yet.
Dribble- WOW, will chop up even Virgil, and the 91 composure? His 89 dribble feels like 98.
Passing- I expected everything from Salah I've said on the list, but this is what surprised me. His short passes are so fast and accurate he rarely gets intercepted. His through balls are above average but not really anything to write home about and the heading is bad on everyone this year except CR7.
Defense- Used to be a Lb when he was a teen, and his defense stat is actually pretty good for an attacker he does get the ball back for me a decent amount, however fun fact he is leading the premier league in balls won in the final third.
Physical- I believe he deserves a bit more strength because when he doesn't dive he actually hold the ball off really well even from stronger backs, but it actually still decent in fifa and he will combine his pace and physical to get past and will body the odd Jordi Alba and Marcelo of course.
Lasts full 90 min easily and not a problem going into extra time
Worth Every coin
HIGH MED WORKRATES, VERY IMPORTANT
3 star weakfoot isnt unusable but its there
Let me start this review off by stating I am a United fan, because i am going to sound like a Salah fanboy in this review.
I packed Mohamed in a 2 Player pack and my whole room came down. Mo Salah is an absolute goat in this game. He took me from an Average FUT Player to beasting it in Champs. He can carry the entire club on his back and change a draw to a win, or a Gold 1 to an Elite 3. Here is a quick review on the lad.
Pace - Electric! Burns any defender on this game, no question asked.
Shooting - His left foot is an absolute Cannon, but his right foot is so unreliable that I'd rather pass it off infront of goals then take a shot with it.
Passing - With Maestro he has world class passing. I'd reccommend playing him with maestro if he's on the wing, as his Finishing is already amazing, and his Shot Power needs a boost.
Dribbling - I can't tell the difference between his dribbling and Messi's dribbling, honestly. He makes any and every defender on this game his B***h.
Physical - He has enough Strength to barge through fullbacks, but his Aggression isn't high enough.
Shot Power (With chem)
3* Weak Foot
I got him from a pack I got doing an sbc and he's been good but not exceptional. I like him in real life and I was excited when I got him and he's lived up to expectations for the most part but he hasn't been too consistent. What I like is he is very clinical and his left foot finesse shots are superb. His physical isn't great though and some stronger defenders are able to muscle him off the ball. For some reason he feels kind of slow sometimes but I think it's cause his fitness goes down fairly quicly.
His signature celebration:
We've all seen Salah in real life with his dives and shit, sorry to disappoint you but he kinda does that in the game too. I was surprised because of his strength with chem style which is really good for a winger but he always falls of the ball. Don't get me wrong he can get past defenders but if the defender can get that body touch in I've lost the ball and the other guy can counter. I wouldn't recommend him but still I can't say he's bad. He can score those goals but most often he will fall of the ball and lose it. His passing is alright, he can make those killer passes sometimes but sometimes he will miss the most easy pass.
