The young Ghanaian central defender has broken into the Real Valladolid first team this season in and is already a fixture for Sergio González.

As it happened last year with Fernando Calero, this season has seen the emergence of the 20-year-old defender Mohammed Salisu.

Despite his young age, the Ghanaian player has managed to make the grade and become an important figure for the blanquivioleta in defence

After passing through the youth ranks of the club, Salisu was chosen as replacement for the central defender who left this season for RCD Espanyol.

At the beginning, there were many doubts regarding Sergio González's decision to select a player with so little experience in the la liga, but it did not take many games for the Ghanaian to win the pucelana fans with very good performances day after day .

Without a doubt, he has become one of the key players of this Real Valladolid.

Salisu is a center back who offers you security and leadership in the central defense, and that next to the settled Kiko Olivas form an almost perfect partnership.

Analyzing more his technical qualities, the young Ghanaian does very well with the ball at his feet and is very good in the air  thanks to his 1.91 m height, not only when it comes to clearing balls, but also when he finishes moves at the other end, he has even scored a goal this season against Eibar.

The only drawback that can be attributed to Salisu is that he is quite slow with his recoveries of the ball when played in behind him, something which Fernando Calero stood out, but that is due to the lack of experience and most likely in the future he will improve.

What is clear is that Mohammed Salisu will be one of the revelations of the season and will be on the lips of many fans and teams  very soon.
