Liverpool legend compares star to Messi and Ronaldo

Ian Rush believes Mohamed Salah has reached the heights of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in his debut season for Liverpool.

It seems nobody, at Liverpool especially, can do an interview nowadays without praising Mo Salah.


The Egyptian has been incredible this season with many spectators beginning to wonder how far off the very best he actually is – and if he continues scoring into the month of May, it will be backed up with a very impressive tally of goals.

“You can look at Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez and he (Salah) is up there with any Liverpool forward to have come in [during the Premier League era], Rush said.


“He’s been absolutely amazing but the thing with Salah is that he is so down-to-earth as well.

“The game against Watford was the best I have ever seen him play, he was untouchable – not just because of his four goals but also because he wasn’t selfish and was trying to make goals for his team-mates.

“There are only two players I have seen that can play at that level, and that’s Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.”
