Aboutrika, who was The Pharaohs’ captain in the 2012 Olympics, has told beIN Sports MENA: “Liverpool have a big chance to win the Champions League against Real Madrid.”
“I witnessed on that pitch what Salah can do to Marcelo during the Olympic Games.”
“I was playing with Egypt against Brazil. Marcelo is terrified of Salah. I noticed the same thing in the Champions League when AS Roma played against Real Madrid.”
