Salah’s Egypt favourites to win AFCON says El Hadji Diouf
The 38-year-old hopes his home nation of Senegal can go all the way but admits the Pharaohs could have the edge.
Former Liverpool attacker El Hadji Diouf has named Egypt as his favourites to lift the Africa Cup of Nations as the host nation will have bigger support than other sides and boast the attacking talents of Mohamed Salah.
The controversial forward had a career full of ups and downs, struggling with disciplinary issues while also being named Africa’s Footballer of the Year in 2001 and 2002.
Despite the low points, Diouf lifted cups with Liverpool and Rangers, was part of the 2002 Senegal side that impressed in the World Cup and made it to the final of the AFCON in the same year.
