The Egypt international has enjoyed a sensational season with the Reds thus far, having already netted 20 Premier League goals.

Klopp was asked about comparisons between Salah and Messi and the former Borussia Dortmund coach reveals he is not interested in comparing the two.

“Is Mo the best in the business? All over the world? Lionel Messi is left-footed, isn't he? Maybe we should not forget him,” Klopp said, according to the Mirror.

“Best in the world, I’m not too interested in these categories but Mo has a good one. I’m more surprised that he had a header (in his Premier League total) as well. He has a right foot that he scored with too probably.

“I don’t care which part of the body he uses. That’s for him like the other boys. It’s a very good left foot for sure.”

The honest answer is that no the guy is nowhere close to Moussi's talent, but he is a good player in his own right, certainly a great revelation for the reds this season, nobody saw him coming!

Messi has been playing at this level for the past 10 seasons or so... Salah is just having a good season... Ofcourse you can never compare the 2
