Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has commented on Mohamed Salah's ability in comparison to Argentinesuperstar Lionel Messi.

The Egypt international is slowly establishing himself as one of the best footballers in world football.

Salah, who joined Liverpool from Italian side AS Roma prior to the start of the current season, has incredibly netted 31 goals from 37 games in all competitions for the English Premier League giants.
As a result, his remarkable form has brought up the comparisons with FC Barcelona forward Messi in recent weeks.

"Hopefully. Lionel Messi is left-footed so maybe we should not forget him completely," Klopp said on The Daily Star.

The German tactician stated that it doesn’t matter which body part Salah uses to score goals for Liverpool.
"I don't care which part of his body he uses but it is a very good left foot,” the former Borrussia Dortmund manager added.

So far Salah has netted more goals than Messi, who has hit the back of the net 30 times in 39 matches in all competitions this season.
