Cristiano Ronaldo ‘not as good as Mohamed Salah right now’ as ex-Liverpool striker Dean Saunders insists nobody can touch ‘unstoppable’ Reds star


Mohamed Salah might j’ust be the best player in wo’rld football on current form, ins”ists’ former Liverpool striker De’an Saunders.

The Reds star contin’ued his fast start to the 2021/22 cam’paign with two more goals in t’he 5-1 thrashing of Porto on Tue’sday night.


Salah can’t stop sco’ring

It means Salah now has ‘eight goals in as many ga’mes th’is season, as the Egypt’ian gets more prolific with each pas:sing year.

The 29-year-old alre”ady has a century of Pre’mier Leag’ue goals, doing so faster than ‘any player in Liverpool his’tory, and Saunders believes it’s about tim’e we ask: who is better?


Lionel Messi answ’ered that q’uite emphatically on Tues’day night, reminding eve’ryone of his enduring class w’ith a beautiful goal in PSG’s 2-0 victory over Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Cristiano Rona’ldo has four goals in as m’any games since returning to Man:chester United.


While Saunders pu’ts the two modern greats in th’eir own bracket, the Wels’hman insists neither of them are ‘better than Salah on curr’ent form.


Right now, as we spe’ak, who’s better than him?” Sau’nders told talkSPORT. “Ei’ght go’als in eight games from right-wi’ng, he’s not playing do’wn the mi’ddle.


He just looks unstop’pable.”

Saunders ad’ded: “The’re’s Messi and Ron’aldo, who a’re on their own, but right no’w they’re not as good as Sa’lah.”

When asked `whet’her he would take Salah or Ron’aldo, Saunders answered: “Righ’t now, Salah.

“It’s easy to say Ron’aldo, but right now Salah loo’ks like he’s going to score every we’ek.
