Fan Claims Mo Salah Should Be ABOVE Steven Gerrard In List Of Liverpool’s Greatest-Ever Players

He may only be in his fifth season on Merseyside, but one fan believes Mo Salah should be above Steven Gerrard in the list of Liverpool's greatest ever players.

Salah has hit an incredible 126 goals in 204 games for Liverpool since his £36.5m switch from Roma in June 2017 and helped the Reds end their top-flight title drought in 2019/20.

The Egyptian has also led Jurgen Klopp's side to Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup glory.

And one caller to talkSPORT's Kick Off ranks Salah only behind Kenny Dalglish when it comes to Liverpool legends.

"In the ranks of Liverpool players, Salah's right up there," said a man named Paul.

"Stevie G, [Fernando] Torres, Michael Owen, Salah's up there in that company.

"For the fact that he's won the Premier League and other things, I think he probably has to come in above Stevie G, which really hurts me to say.

"But I've seen Kenny Dalglish win so many things. He'll always be my number one."


Gerrard is viewed by many as the greatest-ever Red for single-handedly dragging a sometimes mediocre Liverpool team to various cup triumphs.

But the former midfielder can't match the talent of Salah, according to Paul.

Salah scored and claimed two assists as Liverpool defeated Norwich City 3-0 at Carrow Road on the opening weekend of the Premier League season.

In doing so, he became the first player in Premier League history to score in five consecutive opening-day fixtures.

Liverpool's next test is a Saturday lunchtime clash with Burnley and Clarets boss Sean Dyche is fully aware of Salah's ability.

"I don't really sit there and rank players, I know they're really good, including him," Dyche said.

"In my years in the Premier League there have been so many top, top players in all different areas of the pitch, he's certainly proved himself to be one of them."

Meanwhile, Klopp has confirmed that talks are under way on a new contract for Salah as Liverpool look to end speculation over his Anfield future.

The 29-year-old has two seasons remaining on his current contract, an incentivised deal worth up to £200,000 a week, and would be expected to receive a significant increase.

Klopp said: "Mo is obviously in a really good moment football-wise, mood-wise, and how he behaves from the first day he came back is absolutely great.

"There are talks and when there's a decision, we will tell you. Until then it's only important how the parties work together. With two years left you can imagine there are talks and that is it."
