Liverpool Superstar Mohamed Salah Called "The Lionel Messi Of Africa"
Mohamed Salah has been called the 'Lionel Messi of Africa' by Bayern Munich's CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
The Liverpool forward has become a global superstar in recent years and is one of the most popular figures in Egypt.
He's helped the Reds to Premier League and Champions League glory since arriving in 2017 and Rummenigge thinks he is up there with the best.
"In my opinion, Salah is the Messi of Africa and of course he has the skills to play for the best teams in the world," the Bayern chief told ON Time Sports per Goal.
"What he [Salah] has achieved can be compared to what Messi and [Cristiano] Ronaldo did with Barcelona and Real Madrid.
"At the moment we don't plan on signing Salah, but certainly it would be an honour to have him."
While Salah is still regarded as one of the Premier League's top wingers, it has been a tough season for Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp's side don't look likely to retain their title and sit ten points behind league leaders Manchester City.
