Sadio Mane has hailed Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah as the best player in the world. The Egyptian forward has scored a remarkable 22 goals in 24 games across all competitions this season, as well as notching a further nine assists.
Such has been Salah’s sensational form, Mane believes the Egyptian international is operating on a higher level than any other player at this moment in time.
“I think he is the best right now. Every single week he shows it on the pitch.
“Obviously Mo can’t disagree with it, he is the best player. He makes us defend all the time, he is always scoring us and deciding games. We’re just lucky to have him in our squad.”
The Senegalese star also praised midfield duo James Milner and Jordan Henderson for their committed work ethic, singling out the former for his application in both training sessions and matches.
