Mo Salah: I am the best player in the world

Mohamed Salah declared himself the best player in the world.

When Liverpool face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28 in Paris, Al Masry will lead the streak.

“If you compare me to any player in my position, not only in my team but in the world, you will find that I am the best,” he said in comments to beIN Sports, transmitted by Goal.

Salah, 29, has had a great season. In the Liverpool team that still has a chance of winning all four titles available this season, he has 30 goals and 16 assists.

Salah will face Karim Benzema, who can honestly challenge Al-Masry’s claim to be the greatest in the world. This season, Benzema scored 44 goals and 15 assists, and has already won the Spanish League and the Spanish Super Cup. He is at a pivotal stage in his career.

Salah, on the other hand, seeks revenge against Real Madrid. He was a member of the Liverpool team that lost to Los Blancos in the 2018 Champions League final in Kyiv, when he was injured by Sergio Ramos, thus ending the World Cup with Egypt in Russia.
