The Egypt international won the individual prize last term and the Brazilian is confident that it will not be a walk in the park to repeat the feat

Former Barcelona playmaker Ronaldinho is certain that Harry Kane and Sergio Aguero will give Mohamed Salah a ‘hard time’ winning his second consecutive Premier League Golden Boot.

The Liverpool man racked up 32 goals to win the accolade last season, narrowly beating off competition from the Tottenham Hotspur attacker.

On Sunday, the 26-year-old scored one of the goals that helped Jurgen Klopp’s men claim a massive 4-0 victory over West Ham United in their opening league game.

Ronaldinho, though, admitted that the former Roma man will be one of the favourites to clinch the prize, said it will be a herculean task repeating the feat.

“Mohamed Salah is brilliant and has the opportunity to become the top scorer of the Premier League for a second consecutive season,” Ronaldinho told Pyramids TV as per Kingfut.

“He will have a hard time competing for the Golden Boot due to the presence of outstanding players such as Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane.”

When asked if he would love to see the forward in the Spanish league with either Real Madrid or Barcelona, Ronaldinho said: “Salah has the ability to play in any club and any league.”

“The Spanish league will be very suitable for a great player like Mohamed Salah, and for him, it will be like a paradise.”

Salah will be looking to continue the scoring form when Liverpool clash with Crystal Palace in their league game next Monday.
