'Salah Now The Best In the World!'
'Liverpool's Mohamed Salah Now The Nest In The World!'
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard believes Mohamed Salah is currently the best player in the world, ahead of even FC Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, after his stunning display against Roma on Tuesday night.
The Egyptian international produced another masterclass at Anfield as the Reds brushed aside their Serie A opponents 5-2 in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final.
After the match, Salah, who scored two goals and assisted two others on the night, came in for some high praise from Gerrard, who thinks he is better than both Messi and Ronaldo at the moment.
"He's in the form of his life," he said on BT Sport.
"It's difficult to compare him to your Ronaldos and Messis because they've done it for so long and they've been consistent year in, year out.
"But, without a shadow of a doubt, he's the best player on the planet right now."
The 25-year-old has made 47 appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side so far this season, scoring 43 goals and assisting a further 15 strikes.
