Ever since joining Liverpool from AS Roma, Mo Salah has become one of the best strikers in the world, taking the world for assault and leading Egypt to the World Cup.

The winger is one of the most dangerous players up front thanks to his ability to finish with both feet, play wide in the flanks or work between center-backs as a false 9.

Nonetheless, it looks like one of his former teammates isn't impressed with Salah's current form, and even went on to say that he could've been better than the Egyptian.

“With more discipline, I could have had a bigger career than Mohamed Salah. And I would be in the Premier League today, I'm convinced of that, but I'm glad I have had my career, because I have no training - and if I'm honest, no idea about work," Bobadilla told Blick.

Bobadilla and Salah played together at Basel in 2013, before Salah drew the attention of Premier League giants Chelsea FC.

The Argentinean would go on to have an unsuccessful career at Europe before returning to South America to play for Argentinos Juniors, while Salah's Liverpool's biggest superstar and one of the most desired transfer targets for European Giants.

This season, the 26-year-old has scored 20 goals to go along with 8 assists in 35 caps in all competitions.
