Premier League ‘Mohamed Salah is at the same level as Cristiano Ronaldo’

Salah Ronaldo

A former teammate of Mohamed Salah said the Egypt and Liverpool winger is at the same level as Portugal and Manchester United superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.

Salah has been on fire since the start of the season with the Reds scoring 23 goals and 9 assists in 25 appearances across all competitions.

And for Micah Richards who was the Egyptian’s teammate at Fiorentina, Salah is eating on the same table as Ronaldo at the moment.

“I want Liverpool to finalise a new contract for him and I want him to stay in the Premier League for many more years. He is getting to the level now where we are talking about him being in the Premier League’s Hall of Fame, someone who could be in the all-time team,” Richards wrote in his Daily Mail column.

“What a player he has become. He is so dangerous that in some matches you don’t see him for 80 minutes but then he will pop up with a goal or an assist. It’s not luck that happens.

“He’s at Cristiano Ronaldo levels now, the one-time winger who has redefined himself to become an ultimate scorer.

“If 2021 was spectacular for Salah, 2022 can be even more so. He looks a certainty at this stage to win the PFA Player of the Year but if Liverpool were to win the Champions League, he will also have an outstanding chance of lifting the Ballon d’Or.”
