Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has called Mohamed Salah the best player in the world after the Egyptian’s sensational display in their 5-0 win against Watford on Saturday.
Salah deliciously set up Sadio Mane for the opening goal and then capped a sublime performance with a brilliant individual goal in the second half.
“He is top. We all see it. Who is better than him?” Klopp told BT Sport.
“His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special.”
“We don’t have to talk about what Messi and Ronaldo have done for world football and their dominance. But right now, he [Salah] is the best,” Klopp continued.
“I see him every day. There are people like [Robert] Lewandowski and Ronaldo and Messi and [Kylian] Mbappe, but at this moment for sure he’s on top of that list.”
Salah has now scored in each of his past eight games for the Reds, the longest run of consecutive scoring appearances for the club since Daniel Sturridge, who also scored in eight, in February 2014.
Also, Salah’s goal takes him level with former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba as the highest-scoring African player in Premier League history with 104 goals.
His teammate Mane, whose goal took his own Premier League tally to 100, added: “Mo is one of the best players in the world. That goal surprises you guys but we see it all the time in training.”
