Liverpool legend insists Mo is the best of the best

Ian Rush believes that Mo Salah is head and shoulders above all other footballers in the world right now.

“I’ve said this before, right, at the present moment, on current form, Mo Salah is the best player in the world!” he told the Echo.

“Cristiano Ronaldo has gone to Manchester United and yes, he is doing OK. Lionel Messi has gone to Paris Saint-Germain and it has taken a bit of time to settle in but Salah has taken it to a different level.

“On present form he is the best player in the world. He is doing that right now.”

Nine goals so far this season and Salah is looking as sharp as ever. The Egyptian King has been shortlisted for the 2021 Ballon d’Or and is currently great value at 33/1 for those wanting a cheeky punt.
