'Mo Salah Is The Best In The World' - Liverpool Legend Ian Rush

Liverpool's record scorer Ian Rush is in no doubt that Mohamed Salah is currently the best player in the world. That is high praise from a Reds legend for a tag that is normally reserved for Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Best In The World

Rush who knows a thing or two about goal scoring was speaking to Sportsmail and  told them that at the moment there is no-one better than the Egyptian.

"Mo Salah at the moment is the best player in the world."

"He has taken it to a different level. He has been absolutely fantastic this season." 

"Not just with his goal scoring but also with his assists as well. People say "he's selfish" but he has taken his game to a different level now."

Incredible Goal

The Welshman went on to talk about Salah's wonder goal in the 2-2 draw against Manchester City in the enthralling Premier League clash.

"He is playing for the team and if you look against Manchester City, the goal he scored was absolutely incredible. Not just for the skill. But two or three years ago Mo Salah would not kick with his right foot."

Mohamed Salah Manchester City

"But that goal against Manchester City was with his right foot and he has learned from that. Defenders normally would take him down his right-hand side because he would not shoot and on his left he can do anything."

"But defenders now are worrying whether they should go to the right or left of him and that is why he has improved his game."

Rush will be hoping like all Liverpool fans that Salah can continue his early season form and keep the Reds in the hunt for trophies.
