Former Chelsea forward, Chris Sutton, has identified Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah as currently a better player than Paris Saint-Germain’s Lionel Messi and Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.
Salah was outstanding in Liverpool’s Premier League 2-2 draw with Manchester City at Anfield last weekend.
The Egyptian star set up Sadio Mane for Liverpool’s first goal before going on an incredible solo run to score the Reds’ second goal.
Salah is currently joint top goal scorer in the Premier League this season alongside Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy.
His performances in the current campaign so far have brought him plenty of admiration from all corners.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5’s Monday Night Club, Sutton said: “At this moment in time, he’s better than [Lionel] Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo.”
“His numbers have been sensational the last few seasons.
“To do it on that stage, which he has done for so many years, it just sums up how brilliant he is.
“Consistency is what you look for and he is doing it season after season after season where others are falling away and Liverpool still haven’t signed him up.”
