Ex-Chelsea star Joe Cole has actually compared Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah to popular PSG enemy Lionel Messi.

The 29-year-old has actually been sensational for the Reds considering that signing up with the club in 2017 and is close to reaching 100 Premier League strikes.

He has actually up until now handled 96 for the Merseyside- based charges, which takes his tally to 98 after discovering the back of the net two times throughout his not successful and short stint with the Blues.

“He is unbelievable. It did not work at Chelsea but he has come back and become a fantastic player,” Cole informed BT Sport as priced quote by Mirror.

“Do you know what I love about him? He is so direct, he gets at players, no one is like Messi but there is an element to his game, his left foot. So well balanced. Wonderful player.”

Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch admired the Egyptian for his ruthlessness in front of the objective and his conversion rate which puts him on par with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.

“It is an unbelievable record, [how] he has turned from a winger to become a ruthless goal-scoring machine has been unbelievable,” Crouch was priced quote as stating by the exact same publication.

“A true Liverpool great. To get 100 goals in the same space of time as Henry; they are the types of players we are talking about with Mo Salah.”

Crouch has more soft-pedaled an idea that sometimes, Salah purposefully rejected Sadio Mane a possibility to rating by selfishly rejecting him the ball last season.

“He has had a bit of stick at times and Mane has been unhappy with how he has been selfish at times,” the ex-England striker continued.

“But when you’ve got someone like that in your team you’re always in with a chance. He’s up there with the top players for sure.”

Liverpool beat Burnley 2-0 on Saturday to make it 2 wins in a row to move top of the table, pending the result of other matches.

The hosts scored their very first objective in the 18th minute when Diogo Jota transformed a Konstantinos Tsimikas pass. Salah believed he had actually doubled the benefit 10 minutes later on, however after a VAR evaluation, his objective was cancelled for offside.

But the previous champs were not to be rejected in the 69th minute when Mane existed to score from a Trent Alexander-Arnold pass to seal the win.
