Ex-Chelsea star, Joe Cole compares ‘unbelievable’ Salah to Messi
Joe Cole, a former player at Chelsea, has compared Liverpool’s star, Joe Cole to Lionel Messi.
Salah has been sensational for Liverpool since joining the club in 2017 and is close to a century Premier League strikes.
He has so far managed 96 for the Reds, which takes his tally to 98 after finding the back of the net twice during his brief spell at Chelsea.
“He is unbelievable. It did not work at Chelsea but he has come back and become a fantastic player,” Cole told BT Sport as quoted by Mirror.
“Do you know what I love about him? He is so direct, he gets at players, no one is like Messi but there is an element to his game, his left foot. So well balanced. Wonderful player.”
Liverpool defeated Burnley 2-0 on Saturday to make it two wins in a row in the new Premier League season. Salah will seek to do more for his side when they face Chelsea in the league next weekend.
