Mohamed Salah Signed For Saudi Club Leaving Brazilian Team-Mate Confused

An Al-Adalah player went through a whirlwind of emotions last year after hearing his club had signed Mohamed Salah, only to find out it was the Liverpool winger’s namesake and not the man himself. A host of footballing talent flocked to the Saudi Pro League in 2023. Cristiano Ronaldo completed his move to Al-Nassr shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, while Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema, Chelsea trio N’Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy and Kalidou Koulibaly, and Wolves’ Ruben Neves have transferred to the Middle East in the early summer....Read The Full Story Here ▶

Several Liverpool players followed, with Roberto Firmino, Fabinho and Jordan Henderson making moves to Saudi and Sadio Mane joining Ronaldo at Al-Nassr.

Meanwhile, despite Salah signing a three-year contract extension at Anfield in 2022, he was still subject to a mega bid of around £150m from Saudi on the eve of the 2023/24 season. An offer Liverpool quickly rebuffed.

However Edson, a Brazilian defensive midfielder who plays for Al-Adalah believed his club had snapped up the Egyptian King himself when reading of his employers’ signing on June 24, 2023. Speaking to ESPN in his home country, he explained how he even celebrated the news at first.

He said: “Regarding Salah, I thought it was Liverpool’s. It turned out not to be, I was hoping that was it. Arab football is growing a lot every year and if Salah went there, it wouldn’t be something out of this world.”

The player in question was actually a left back hailing from Saudi Arabia. He went on to make just three appearances for the club last season.

Edson also spoke of the league’s growing financial power during his interview, but with a positive outlook.

“People are investing a lot in Arab football, they want to make a stronger league every year. I’m happy to participate in this magical moment that football there is experiencing.

“They have always invested. The presidents, the league, the Saudi Federation. But the investment power has been increasing every year, and now it has increased even more. This is good for the country, which is very fond of football.

It is a country that league has a lot to grow. Automatically, with the best players going there, everyone else will want to go too. If one goes, the other wants to go too. I’m happy to represent the club in this very important moment.

“They have a plan for 2030, who want to transform Saudi Arabia as they did in Dubai. To attract tourists, they are investing heavily in the structure of cities. I am sure that the Saudi Championship will be among the six, seven best in the world. I have no doubt about that, because it is growing a lot every year.”
