'If Mohamed Salah Wins Another Premier League And Champions League... He's A Bigger Liverpool Legend Than Steven Gerrard'

Mohamed Salah could go on to become a bigger Liverpool legend than former captain Steven Gerrard, it has been claimed.

Salah has scored 155 goals in 251 games for Liverpool since joining from Roma in 2017.

The Egyptian has won the Premier League, Champions League and Carabao Cup during his time at Anfield, with his goals a major factor in the club's success in recent years.

He could add yet more silverware to his collection this season, with Liverpool still in contention for an unprecedented quadruple.

According to talkSPORT host Hugh Woozencroft, Salah will become a bigger Liverpool legend than Gerrard if he wins the Premier League and Champions League again with the Reds.

"He's already won them a Premier League title, or at least helped to win them a Premier League title," said Woozencroft.

"He's won the Champions League there already.

"If he wins another Premier League title and another Champions League, and he continues to be the talisman that he has been for Liverpool, he has to be seen as a bigger Liverpool legend than Steven Gerrard.

"If Steven Gerrard wasn't local, wasn't English…"

Former England international Danny Mills then interjects: "I would disagree because Steven Gerrard, what he did over the course of time for many, many years… dragging that team up, almost single-handedly.

"I think it was incredible. Absolutely outstanding.

"It is difficult to match that. Mohamed Salah has a much, much better team around him."

Gerrard scored 185 goals in 709 games for Liverpool, captaining his boyhood club for the majority of his career.

During a period of limited success for Liverpool, Gerrard helped inspire the Reds to Champions League glory in 2005 and would also win two FA Cups, three League Cups and the UEFA Cup while at Anfield.

In 2015, readers of the Liverpool Echo voted Gerrard the greatest player in Liverpool's history, ahead of the likes of Kenny Dalglish, Ian Rush, John Barnes and Luis Suarez.

Meanwhile, football fans on social media have largely disagreed with Woozencroft's opinion.

One Twitter user wrote: "No, much like [Alan] Shearer for my club, Gerrard could've left for more trophies and money. He stayed because Liverpool was in his heart.

"Salah may even be a better player than Gerrard (diff positions) but fans determine who are true legends."

Another added: "No. Legend status isn't about trophies won. It's about commitment and desire for the club. It's about putting your body on the line game after game.

"It's about leading from the front foot. It's about being the person who the others all turn to for help in desperate times."
