Despite a drop in his recent performance level, Mo Salah’s ability has still lead to him being compared to a prime Lionel Messi by one pundit.
Speaking on Sky Sports, Clinton Morrison was full of praise for the Egyptian King: “I think he’s a fantastic footballer, some of the goals he’s scoring is like Messi eight or nine years ago with some spectacular goals.
“I think it would be hard for Liverpool to replace him, I think Diaz is an exceptional young talent but I think Salah is the main man”.

There won’t be many inside Anfield that will argue that our No.11 doesn’t have talents that are comparable to the Barcelona legend, now and at his very best.
The 29-year-old is chasing the individual accolades that would place him alongside the Argentine forward and to do that, he will need to continue his abnormal goal scoring records of the past few campaigns.
Let’s see whether he can reach these heights and prove the former Crystal Palace man right.
