Salah and Mahrez came to blows in Manchester City’s visit of Liverpool on Sunday evening and asked in the aftermath who he thought was the better player, the Brazilian legend chose the Reds winger as reported by

“Mohamed Salah is without a doubt better than Riyad Mahrez,” Cafu said.

“If I had to choose a team to play for nowadays I think I would choose Liverpool. It’s a great club, and I like English football in general.

“If I had to choose a player to play alongside it would be Zidane,” he concluded.

Mahrez might not have gotten Cafu’s vote, but the Algerian was on the winning team at Anfield with City claiming a memorable 4-1 victory to move five points clear atop the league standings.

The former Leicester City star has scored five league goals this season, compared to Salah’s 16 strikes which sees him top of the golden boot race.
