Mohamed Salah has scored eight goals in eight appearances for Liverpool in all competitions this season and now he is being hailed as the best striker in the world right now.
Liverpool legend Dean Saunders believes that even global superstar duo Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are not as good as Mohamed Salah at the moment, who continues to show tremendous productivity as a right-wing forward.
The 29-year-old forward has scored eight goals in eight games in various competitions this season for the Reds, most recently when he scored twice in Liverpool’s 1-5 win over FC Porto in the Champions League.
In fact it made him only the third African player to score 30 goals or more in the Champions League after Didier Drogba (44 goals) and Samuel Eto’o (30 goals), while he is also currently the Premier League’s top scorer with five goals.
Meanwhile, 36-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo has scored five goals in five games after returning to Manchester United in the summer, including the winner for The Red Devils against Villarreal in the Champions League.
Meanwhile, 34-year-old Lionel Messi finally broke the egg with Paris Saint-Germain when he scored his team’s second goal in a 2-0 win over Manchester City at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday (29/9) early morning WIB.
Despite the fact that the 11 Ballon d’Or winning duo are still regarded as the best in the world, Liverpool legend Dean Saunders confidently claims that for now, there is no one more powerful striker than Mohamed Salah.
He told talksport, “Right now, as we speak, who is better than him? Eight goals in eight games from the right flank, he didn’t play as a centre-forward. He looks unstoppable. There are Messi and Ronaldo, who have their own level. But specifically for now, they are not as good as Salah. Ronaldo or Wrong? Now, the answer is Wrong! It’s easy to say Ronaldo, but at the moment Salah seems to be scoring goals every week.”
