Similar Type of Player: With a very good sense of positioning and anticipation, an unwavering strength and ability to be in the right place at the right time, Salisu makes a lot of his game look effortless. With that in mind I make comparisons to Ledley King.
Footy Files says
Defensively Salisu is beginning to look phenomenal. He is completely fearless in a challenge, extremely consistent and not phased about coming up against the likes of Messi and co. Definitely a big game player. His main downfall currently is his passing ability, as he struggles with long balls often. Sticking to the short passing game would benefit him greatly right now, but he is only 21 and can only improve. One to watch for sure.
