The Udinese midfielder who in recent times has come up against the former Chelsea wideman has praised the AS Roma flyer, but insists his teammates are not scared of him.
The former Basel winger is undoubtedly Egypt’s lynchpin – having shown fine form in Italy this term. He was in his elements when Egypt blazed their way to their vital 2-1 win in Congo.
Badu insists his teammates and himself are not scared of 24-year-old despite his tendency to make a mess out of defences.

“Everyone is saying Salah!Salah!Salah! but I don’t think he is the only player for Egypt, they also have other players,” he was quoted to have said in an interview.
“He is a good player but we equally have good defenders who can match up with him. We all play in Italy and most of our players know him.
“I don’t think is will be a threat to us because we will also be going out with the aim to win as well. We just have to stay focus and take our chances on the day.”
