Former England manager, Sam Allardyce, has praised Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, comparing him to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Following his recent brace against Watford on Saturday, Salah has now scored 84 goals for Liverpool, making him the 18th highest top scorer in the club’s history.

The 27-year-old also broke the record for most Premier League goals scored in a 38-game Premier League campaign in his first season with Liverpool back in 2018.

“Well, the record says ‘yes’ (being the greatest ever Premier League goal scorer),” Allardyce told Talksport.

“It’s harder to keep that record up the more games you play, so if he stays at Liverpool and continues to score those goals, then yes.

“He’s that wide-man goalscorer though, isn’t he. He’s not a down-the-middle goalscorer.

“He’s like Ronaldo. Ronaldo and Messi both score goals but not as a centre-forward, and Mo Salah is the same.

“So it makes it even more remarkable with the goals Salah has scored from his position,” he added.

Liverpool are currently the Premier League leaders with 49 points in 17 games, ten points ahead of second-placed Leicester City.

The Reds travel to Doha as they are set to play the semi-final of the FIFA Club World Cup against Monterrey on Wendesday. Kick-off takes place at 19:30 CLT.
