Mohamed Salah is the best player in the world at the moment, says Jamie Carragher.
Salah continued his incredible start to the season with a world-class display against Manchester City.
The Egyptian assisted Sadio Mane in breathtaking fashion before netting a wonder goal in the 2-2 draw.
Salah is widely regarded as one of the best players in the Premier League, if not the best, but former Red Carragher has extended that out to call him the best player in the world.
Fellow pundit Micah Richards began the conversation by saying: “Salah is the best player in the league at the moment on this performance.”
But Carragher was quick to correct the former Man City defender, saying there’s currently no one better in the game.
“I don’t think there’s anyone playing better in the world at this moment or in European football, I really don’t,” Carragher said.
“Seeing the Champions League in the last few weeks, his record at the start of this season has been absolutely outstanding.
“You can never really question him too much for what he’s done at Liverpool, if at all, but right now he is probably as sharp and as good as I’ve ever seen him.”
Salah has nine goals in nine games in all competitions this season, along with three assists.
The 29-year-old recently joined the Premier League’s 100 goal club, and has an astonishing 134 goals in 212 games.
His performance against City was yet another sign of his class, jinking past Joao Cancelo with a beautiful piece of skill, before playing in Sadio Mane for the game’s opener.
He then put the Reds back ahead following Phil Foden’s equaliser, with a Lionel Messi-esque run leaving four defenders in his dust as he fired in a pinpoint finish with his weaker right foot.
Carragher believes Salah would make it in Liverpool’s greatest ever XI, and that the club can no longer mess around as they seek to extend the Egyptian’s contract at Anfield.
“Mohamed Salah goes into Liverpool’s greatest XI. Liverpool cannot afford to let this drag on,” Carragher said.
Salah is said to be asking for £500,000 a week, with his current contract set to expire in 2023.
That may be two years away, but many of the world’s best players fail to agree to an extension once they’ve entered the final year of their contract, with rivals able to offer huge incentives to convince a player to join for free once their deal is up.
