Do not compare Salah with Messi- Klopp

Football News: The Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that no one can measure up Lionel Messi’s performance; at the same time he feels that Salah is ready to join the elites.

Football News: The Reds gaffer did not want to put pressure on his main man by comparing him with the world’s best.

The German manager believes that Mohamed Salah would soon be considered as one of the best players in the world, but he feels right now the comparison with the games best would not help him.

Last night Salah scored four goals for Liverpool against Watford, and Liverpool won the match with flying colors by 5-0 goals, and now the Egyptian international has 27 goals to his name for the Merseyside team.

In his second season with the EPL, Salah has been able to make an excellent impact, and the question put it to klopp about the Egyptian international and about the Argentine international.

Klopp voiced: "Yes, I think Mo is on the way,"

"That's good. I don't think Mo wants or anybody wants to be compared with Lionel Messi.


"He [Messi] is the one that is doing what he is doing for 20 years it feels like. The last player that I know who had that influence on a team performance was Diego Maradona I think, another Argentine guy.

"Mo is on a fantastic way, that's for sure. But how it always is in life, if you have the skills, then you have to show it, constantly. And his consistency is very good for us, he helps us a lot. The boys love playing together with him."

Mocked about Salah in the post-match, Klopp stated: "He gave the answer already with four goals.

"If the question is, 'what do I think about that?', I think that's quite exceptional

"Another good performance in a very difficult game, in a very impressive manner, coping and dealing with difficult conditions.

"The whole team tonight but especially around the first goal I would say Mo, because it was obviously slippery. 

"Everybody suffered, but not Mo in that situation. That's what you need to be on the highest level."
