Didier Drogba has congratulated Liverpoool forward Mohamed Salah for eclipsing his record as the highest goalscoring African in a single English Premier League season.
In his debut campaign at Anfield, the fleet-footed attacker has notched 40 goals in 45 games across all competitions.
As a reward for his blistering form this season, Salah has been shortlisted for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award and the ex-Blues forward is adamant that the best of the 2017 African Footballer of the Year is yet to come.
"It was just a matter of days before this guy put my goal record as number one African top scorer in the Premier League to bed," Drogba wrote on Instagram.
"So proud of you little brother Mohamed Salah, continue to put our continent as high as you can! Much love and blessings, like I said before the best is yet to come."
