In his reaction, ex-England star Sutton says the player is currently the best player and Liverpool should quickly offer him a contract.
Sutton said via Daily Mail:
“Mohamed Salah is currently the best footballer in the world. He’s better than Lionel Messi. Better than Cristiano Ronaldo. Better than Robert Lewandowski, Karim Benzema, Erling Haaland and whoever else you want to counter with.
“They’re world-class players, all of them, but Salah is playing out of this world at the moment."
Jurgen Klopp says Salah is world’s best right now.
Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is the best player in the world right now according to his manager Jurgen Klopp.
"His performance was massive today. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special. He is top. We all see it.
“Who is better than him? We don't have to talk about what Messi and Ronaldo have done for world football and their dominance. But right now, he is the best."
Man Utd chiefs back Solskjaer to succeed
Briefly News earlier reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly has the full backing of Man United despite the club's recent poor run of results.
With just weeks into the new season, pressure is already mounting on Solskjaer to quit, with a section of fans suggesting he should be axed in the wake of the club's 4-2 defeat to Leicester.
After what appeared as progress under Ole, the Norwegian was handed a lucrative new deal in the summer and was heavily backed in the transfer window with Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho all joining.
