A football fan has caused controversy after claiming Mohamed Salah wouldn't get in Manchester City's team over Phil Foden.


Salah assisted Sadio Mane for Liverpool's second goal in their 2-0 Champions League semi-final first leg win over Villarreal on Wednesday evening.

The Egypt international has been sensational this season, but talkSPORT's Andy Goldstein doesn't believe he walks into every team in the world.

"I don't think he's the best player in the world," he said before Darren Bent asked if he gets into any front three in the world.

Goldstein replied: "Does he? Who do you take out of Man City's front three?"

Bent said Foden or Riyad Mahrez would come out of the team and Goldstein hesitated when it came to the former.

"Salah, the top goalscorer in the Premier League... oh my goodness," Bent uttered.

It then saw Goldstein declare: "I think for Manchester City, Foden is better than Salah."

Foden is one of the best young talents in world football and scored in City's 4-3 win over Real Madrid on Tuesday.

He's made 40 appearances this season, scoring 13 and providing nine assists.

Salah, meanwhile, has scored a whopping 30 goals and registered 14 assists in 44 games.

Fans have reacted to the claim and they're in disbelief.

One commented: "I give up how do you pick Foden over Salah."

Another said: "C'mon Andy... Foden ahead of Salah... Stop it."

A third put: "Salah has most goals in the league, most assists in the league, scored 8 in the CL this season and you're telling me he don’t get in any team!"

While someone tweeted: "Get out of here bro."

Liverpool prevented Villarreal from having a single shot on target and look in a comfortable position heading to Spain for the return leg next week.

Unai Emery's side defeated Juventus and Bayern Munich to reach their first Champions League semi-final in 16 years and have given a good account of themselves in the competition.
