Rival fans slam comparisons between Liverpool star Salah and Messi

Mohamed Salah is the talk of the town at the moment thanks to his goalscoring heroics for Liverpool.

The Egyptian international has scored 36 goals in all competitions and is current leading the race for the Premier League Golden Boot with 28 to his name.

The 25-year-old was labelled a Chelsea reject after failing to establish himself in the first team during a two-year spell, but now he is drawing comparisons to five-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi.

Whenever an attacking player is hitting his best form, he is generally likened to the greatest footballers in the game.

After Salah hit four in a 5-0 rout over Watford last weekend, some have begun mentioning the former Roma star in the same breath as Messi, who has won 30 trophies in his career, including four Champions League titles.

In an interview with Sky Sports News, Salah’s club teammate Andrew Robertson, who has gained a major Liverpool following of his own, claimed that the attacker could reach the same heights as Messi.

As expected, plenty of rival fans are not having any of this.
