- Mohamed Salah is currently in blistering form for Premier League club Liverpool and Chris Sutton believes the forward is the best in the world
- Salah scored what could be described as ‘world’s best goal’ against Watford over the weekend as they won 5-0
- According to Sutton, the 29-year-old Egyptian is better than the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Robert Lewandowski at the moment
Former England international Chris Sutton has showered praises on Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah, claiming the Egyptian player is the world’s best player right now.
Salah has been in sensational form for Liverpool this season and he scored a wonder-goal in the 5-0 rout of Watford over the weekend.
After scoring one of the most memorable goals in Liverpool's 2-2 draw against Manchester City two weeks ago, Salah was at it again against the Hornets as he inspired the Reds to a thrilling win.
The 29-year-old scored yet another breathtaking goal while setting up two other goals in the massive win over Watford.
In his reaction, ex-England star Sutton said the Egypt international is, without doubt, the best player in the world currently 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," he added.
