“When Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi score that goal, they say he is first class. Mohamed Salah scores that goal because he is world class.”
It’s hard to put into words how good Salah’s goal was in Sunday’s 2-2 Liverpool v Manchester City, despite Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp doing the best of him.
After finding the ball on the right side of the penalty area and being surrounded by three players, Bernardo Silva threw a wise pass and a tap on the other shoe before Salah Aymeric Laporte passed and then fired an attack. and entered from the long post.
“Only the best players in the world score these goals,” said Klopp.
“The first contact, the first challenge he won, then he put him back on the right foot and closed the case, it was really extraordinary.
“This club never forgets these things, so people will talk a lot about this goal, in 50 or 60 years they will remember this goal.”
Salah has scored up to nine goals in all competitions this season. He has scored in each of his last seven appearances, making it the longest run for the Reds. In fact, he has scored in every game he has played this season.
“It was fantastic,” said Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson. “He hits players again and again and is lethal in those positions.”
To the best of him, then?
Salah’s ultimate goal was his 103rd place in the Premier League, making him the 30th player to score 100 league goals in his battle against Leeds on 12 September. Here’s a reminder of some of his other big strikes.
