Mohamed Salah Has Already Outperformed Cristiano Ronaldo's Greatest Seasons At Manchester United

Mohamed Salah Has Already Outperformed Cristiano Ronaldo's Greatest Seasons At Manchester United

Mohamed Salah's three best seasons in a Liverpool shirt are better than Cristiano Ronaldo's during his peak at Manchester United.

Salah has started this season in fine form and netted a hat-trick in Saturday's 4-3 victory over Leeds United.

Gary Neville said the Egyptian isn't far from being the best in the world on Sky Sports earlier this week, a tag Ronaldo has had alongside Lionel Messi for most of his career.

United won the Premier League in all three of Ronaldo's top seasons but individually, Salah scored seven more goals and made eight more assists.

The 28-year-old joined Liverpool in 2017 and has consistently produced at a world class level.

He's scored 97 goals in 154 games in all competitions and Neville heaped praise on the former Roma man.

"There was a point in the game where I was watching Salah and I just thought, that is some player," he said on Monday Night Football.

"Four years ago, when he first came to Liverpool and he got those 40-odd goals, I thought, 'That's a freak. He won't be able to live with that.'

"But then he consistently produces over a period of two or three years.

"[Kylian] Mbappe, he's fantastic. Neymar, he's a bit up and down a bit... Where is the best player in the world going to be in the next couple of years?

"Salah is not far away from it anyway, but to me on Saturday he looked like an absolutely different level."

Do you think Mohamed Salah deserves to be in the Premier League GOAT debate?
