Salah best in world: Klopp

Jurgen Klopp hailed Mohamed Salah as the best player in the world after the Liverpool forward scored another sublime goal in Saturday’s 5-0 demolition of Watford, reports AFP. Salah underlined why Liverpool are so desperate to get the Egypt forward to sign a new contract with his audacious second-half strike at Vicarage Road. Dancing through the

Watford defence, Salah’s magical moment topped even his eye-catching goal against Manchester City before the international break. For the first time in his career, Salah has scored in eight successive top-flight matches and Liverpool boss Klopp has no doubts he is now

better than even Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. “We don’t have to talk about what Ronaldo and Messi did for world football and how they were really dominant,” Klopp said.
