Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard, believes the Mohamed Salah, on current form, is the best player the world has to offer. But the huge claim about the Egyptian forward didn’t go down well with football fans.

This is an insult

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah is the best player in the world right now, according to club great Steven Gerrard.

Salah produced yet another irresistible display to guide Jurgen Klopp’s side to a 5-2 win over Roma in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final on Tuesday.

Gerrard believes Salah, who has netted 43 goals this season, is currently better than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

“It’s difficult to compare him to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi because they’ve been consistent year in, year out. But, without a shadow of a doubt, he’s the best player on the planet right now.” Gerrard told BT Sport.

There’s no denying Salah is in the form of his life, but football fans took issue with Gerrard claiming he has been better than the two greatest players of the last decade.
