Rush said that based on the current levels of performances of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, it can be said that Salah is performing better than them both. Salah, who is often called the Egyptian Messi, has turned out to be quite a revelation since he got transferred from Roma to Liverpool this summer. The soccer player has made 23 goals this season, in only 29 appearances in all the competitions so far. He is undoubtedly one of the best performers of EPL season 2017-18 and is going to perform in 17 upcoming games in the Premier League.
He may be handed more responsibility of breaking open the defenses, now that Coutinho has left the team to join Barcelona in the January transfer window. The player himself is hoping to make an addition to his own tally when they play against the current Premier League heroes, Manchester City. He is all set to create a record season with the team, with his performances having impressed the all-time highest goal-scorer of Liverpool, hugely.
While talking about how he hopes the Egyptian will stay with Liverpool for years to come and make great contributions, he made the sensational claim that taking into consideration the current performances, Salah is better than the world soccer leaders, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, at the moment. Salah has also received the honour as the African Player of the Year, and according to Rush, the player has exceeded expectations at the English team this season, surprising everyone with his massive number of goals, and go beyond the defenders with his amazing pace.
Rush even compared him to Messi, and said that once Mo goes enters the penalty zone with his incredible speed and electric moves, he is seems just like the Argentine player. Rush added that Mo is unbelievable, and his game is worth the money paid to watch him, because he knows how to get the audience off their seats, whenever the ball is at his feet. Rush hopes that the player will stay and improve even more at Liverpool.
