Former France head coach Raymond Domenech believes Mohamed Salah is on the same level as Kylian Mbappe and Lionel Messi.

Messi is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time and his Paris Saint Germain (PSG) club teammate Mbappe is among the best players in the world.

Salah has been a consistent performer for Liverpool FC since joining the English giants in 2017 and the Egyptian superstar is considered amongst the greatest African players of all time.

“If we talk about Mohamed Salah, I can only say he is world class,” Domenech said on King Fut.

“All the awards that Salah won are fully deserved. It is unfortunate that he will not participate in the 2022 World Cup.

“I would certainly like to see him play for Paris Saint-Germain. A player with this mentality pushes the team forward and is a huge addition,” the former France and PSG full-back added.

“He is on a level that only Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe reached and he embodies what every coach wishes for in a player and will add so much to French football.”

Mbappe and Messi will represent France and Argentina respectively at the 2022 FIFA World Cup finals in Qatar.

While Salah will miss the World Cup as Egypt failed to qualify for the tournament.
