Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher believes that Mohamed Salah is the best player in Europe and the club needs to offer him a contract as soon as possible. The Egyptian scored a wondergoal in their 2-2 draw with fellow title rivals Manchester City. He dribbled past Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, and Aymeric Laporte before shooting past Ederson from a tight angle. He set up Sadio Mane for the opener and has now scored in seven consecutive games. The African Player of the Year also became only the fourth Liverpool player to score 100 goals.
“I don’t think there’s anyone playing better in the world or in Europe at the moment,” Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher said. “His record at the start of this season has been absolutely outstanding. You can never really question him for what he’s done at Liverpool – if at all – but right now is as probably as sharp and as good as I’ve ever seen him.”
“His finish was world-class and he is world-class,” he added. “I said this over the last couple of weeks – he is one of the greatest players to play for Liverpool. The club has lost Roger Hunt in the last few days, one of the greatest goalscorers the club has ever seen. Mo Salah is one of them, in terms of Ian Rush, Roger Hunt… Mo Salah is up there. He goes into a Liverpool greatest XI. You think of the greatest players Liverpool has had – he goes on that right side, there’s absolutely no doubt about it.”
