On Tuesday, the two will be on opposing sides as Liverpool travels to Madrid to face Atletico Madrid in a crucial European match.
Rio Ferdinand was adamant, and rightfully so. “I’d take Mo Salah,” insisted the former Manchester United and England defender. “What he’s done in the last four seasons, I think he’s immense, the icing on the cake is he’s an integral part of a team who’s won big trophies. He’s a joy to watch – an assassin in and around the box. I can’t look past him in the modern era.”
Michael Owen was adamant too, mind, and why wouldn’t he be? “The question was ‘who would you have for one season?’ right?” he pointed out. “Well the season Luis Suarez played under Brendan Rodgers [2013-14], I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. He was unbelievable, off the scale.”
The dispute, which erupted on BT Sport after Liverpool’s Champions League victory over Porto last month, would rage on social media for days.
Which do you prefer: Prime Salah or Prime Suarez? This week, as Salah’s Liverpool prepare to face Suarez’s Atletico Madrid, it’s a topic worth addressing.
