Statistics show Mohammed Salisu is among top-class defenders in Spanish La Liga

Mohammed Salisu Mohammed Salisu

Real Valladolid ace Mohammed Salisu has proven to be one of the top-performing defenders in the Spanish La Liga.

He tops the chart in clearances (136) and rarely commits fouls- which is a very important attribute of a marquee defender.

The centre back earned a 6.87 rating by the statistical body SofaScore.

Salisu has promoted to First Team this term and so his debut season has been eye-catching.

The 21-year-old is a first choice at Valladolid with 27 league appearances and one goal to his credit.

The Ghanaian youth star has emerged a transfer target for many clubs including Manchester United and Real Betis.
