“He’s in Liverpool’s all-time XI on the right wing, it’s his. And he’s one of the five or six best players to ever play for Liverpool Football Club. He’s won the greatest trophies; he won the European Cup, he won the championship.

“His goalscoring record is out of this world. He’s won the Golden Boot practically every year since he’s been in the country.

“Since joining the club, Liverpool have been in a Champions League final, won the Champions League, won the league and he was the league’s top scorer.

“It shows the impact he has had. He is one of the greatest of all time in the Premier League, without a doubt.”

Salah currently tops the Premier League goalscoring charts (16), despite missing games against Bretford and Crystal Palace due to his participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.

In the Champions League, only Robert Lewandowski (9) and Sebastien Haller (10) have found the back of the net on more occasions this season in Europe’s elite competition than the Liverpool talisman (8).
