Mohamed Salah is in the same league as Messi and Ronaldo – David Ginola hails Liverpools Egyptian King

David Ginola believes Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is in the same league as greatest players on the planet after he destroyed Roma in the Champions League.

The Egyptian ace put in a world-class performance with two goals and two assists in Tuesday nights 5-2 win at Anfield.

It takes the 25-year-olds tally to 43 goals in 47 games in his outstanding first season on Merseyside.

And Ginola believes Salah is now up there with the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo thanks to his scintillating form since joining the Reds in the summer.

Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, the former Premier League star said: “This is a special year and a special season for Mo Salah, because everything he tries he is succeeding.

“He is succeeding in everything he does on the pitch.

“You can compare Mo Salah to any of the greatest players out there. The things he does are just unbelievable, its just amazing.

“Left foot, right foot, hes clever, hes composed – he is a player of real quality.

“That, for me, is what Jurgen Klopp has brought to Liverpool football club as well – making players like that even better than they were before.”

Jubilant Liverpool fans were crowing for their Egyptian King to win the Ballon d'Or this year, and Ginola agrees that he would deserve the honour.

Salah has already been crowned the PFA Player of the Year and, as well as spearheading Liverpool's Champions League run, he needs only one more goal to break the Premier League scoring record for a single season, having equalled the record with 31 goals.

Former Tottenham and Newcastle star Ginola added: “I presented the Ballon dOr to Cristiano Ronaldo last year and I would be happy to present the Ballon dOr to Mo Salah this year.

“He really deserves it after what hes done in the Premier League and Champions League.”
