A product of the Pune FC academy, Salam won back-to-back youth league titles before being promoted to the senior team in 2013-14, as he featured in the I-League and AFC Cup for the Red Lizards. He then joined Bengaluru FC, with whom he won the I-League and Federation Cup trophies.

The 6’1″ defender then had a brief stint with NorthEast United, followed by two years at East Bengal. Salam has amassed more than 50 appearances in the I-League and has impressed one and all with his robust performances, possessing adept positional awareness and aerial ability, while not shying away from a crunching challenge.

A no-nonsense presence at the back, Salam was first called up to the national team in 2017, having been picked prior at the youth level. Among his 11 senior caps so far are solid performances in the 2018 Intercontinental Cup triumph, along with game time in the 2019 AFC Asian Cup as well.

Salam then returned to the ISL to play for ATK and was a member of the squad that won the 2019-20 title.
