believes has got what it takes to replace or if he was able to replicate this season’s achievements in the next few years. 

Famously known as the General, Hitzfeld is one of the very few coaches that have managed to win the Champions League manging two different teams.

The man that was previously at the helm of both Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund spoke to T-Online about Salah’s displays this season and what he can achieve in the very near future.

“Liverpool have a world class player in Salah. He could eventually replace Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi, if he can confirm the achievements of this season in the next few years.”

Salah bagged 43 goals in all competitions since signing for the Reds and he is vastly becoming a fan favorite all over England.

The Pharaoh has been sensational this season and is only four goals away from beating the record of Liverpool’s historic goal scorer Ian Rush.

Following his PFA title, a win for Liverpool against Roma this Wednesday, could raise Salah’s chances of becoming one of the top contenders for the Ballon d’Or award by the end of the year.
