Salah is third best player in the world, says ex Barcelona manager
Former Barcelona, Tottenham, and England manager Terry Venables believes Mohamed Salah is yet to reach the level of Ronaldo or Messi, saying he is third behind them.
The Egyptian is having an incredible debut season at Anfield, scoring 43 goals while providing 15 assists in 47 games across all competitions.
And now Venables has offered his verdict on the Egyptian, saying he is the third best player in the world behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“That Salah is something else,” Venables told the Daily Mail.
“Four goals behind Ian Rush for a season? When you get home study how many chances Rush had, where his goals came from.
“He was the centre forward, Salah isn’t in that position, yet still he has scored all those goals.
“Look, if we’re in the playground now and we are picking sides, you could pick between Salah, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, Salah would be third pick. A good third, mind,” he added.
Mohamed Salah’s next encounter will be against AS Roma in the UEFA Champions League semi-finals on Wednesday, May 2.
After Liverpool’s big win in the first-leg, Salah is now close to becoming the first Egyptian to play a European championship final.
He will also be hoping to become the only second Arab to lift the Champions League title after Algeria’s Rabah Madjer, who won it with FC Porto against Bayern Munich in 1987.
