African legend Drogba encourages Salah and Mane to break his record


Côte d’Ivoire legend Didier Drogba showed his support to Liverpool stars, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, pushing them to break his record as the highest African goalscorer in Premier League history.

In the season opener against Norwich, it only took Salah 75 minutes to open his goal-scoring tally and by doing so he became the first player to score on the opening day of five consecutive Premier League seasons.

With that goal, Salah is now the second-highest African goalscorer in Premier League history with 98 goals, only six behind Chelsea’s former striker Didier Drogba.

Mane on the other hand scored his 96th goal in the 2nd round fixture against Burnley to sit fourth on the list behind ex-Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor.
