After Mohamed Salah’s latest miraculous goal and superb performance in Liverpool’s 5-0 win against Watford, Jürgen Klopp hailed him as the best player in the world.
Salah scored Liverpool’s fourth goal with a deft solo effort that was eerily identical to his goal against Manchester City 13 days earlier. Sadio Mané’s opener was also crafted by him with an excellent piece of vision, according to his manager.
“Come on, who is better than him?” Klopp said. “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.
“His performance was massive. The pass for the first goal was great and the second goal was special. He is top, we all see it.”
The goal was Salah’s 10th of the season and his ninth in eight games. “He’s the best, I feel, every day,” Klopp said of Salah’s place in the charts.
Salah was reluctant to separate the goals against Watford and City but acknowledged he is operating with high confidence. “I’m just trying,” he said. “Sometimes I don’t have luck, I’m just trying to give 100% of what I have.
“I am confident at the moment, I’m scoring goals, helping the team win points, which is the most important thing.”
