Ian Rush: Mohamed Salah can become like Ronaldo and Messi
Following his recent goal and assist against Manchester City in the Champions League quarter final, Salah has now contributed to 38 goals and 13 assists in 43 games.
“I’m surprised. If anyone told me he [Mohamed Salah] would score 30 goals in the season you’d probably laugh. He’s already done that,” Rush told Omnisport.
“For me he’s been absolutely amazing. I watched him against Watford, he scored four goals. He was absolutely amazing.
“For me the two greatest players in the world are Messi and Ronaldo, without doubt. They’ve been here year in year out but when I watch Salah, he was on par in that game. He’s got to do it year in year out but he’s certainly got the potential to do that.
“The thing you like about Salah is he’s very unselfish. He scored four goals [against Watford] but he tried to lay on three for others. For me, that’s a perfect Liverpool player,” he added.
The Welshman went on to praise Salah’s relationship with the club staff, players and fans, saying: “The crowd loves him, he loves them, players love him, manager loves him, everyone loves him. So, for me, [there is] no reason for him to go anywhere.”
Liverpool face Everton in the Merseyside derby on Saturday as the Reds look to try and get a second-place league finish this season.
