Jurgen Klopp thinks that people are being premature when they compare Egyptian soccer great Mohamed Salah to Lionel Messi. He does, however, think that Salah is set on becoming one of soccer's greats.
Salah has produced a stunning season and has not let up with a scoring 4 of the goals in the 5-0 thrashing of Watford at Anfield. This brings his tally up to 36 goals for this season.
This is most goals scored by a Liverpool player in their debut year at the club.
Messi is still formidable with his 100th Champions League goal after tearing Chelsea apart with a 3-0 win. While Messi is in this 30's, Salah has time on his side at only 25.
"I think Mo is on the way (to being the best in the world)," said Klopp.
"I don't think Mo or anybody else wants to be compared with Lionel Messi. He is the one who is doing what he's doing for what feels like 20 years or so."
