Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) Leo Messi (Barcelona) or Cristiano Ronaldo Real Madrid) are possible three of the greatest strikers ever, so it would be hard to say.
But if you were picking the best goal scorer right now, Mohamed Salah is probably the best in the world.
The Egyptian ace became the first Liverpool player since Steven Gerrard to score in five consecutive Champions League games.
And with 43 goals in all competitions, he trails Ian Rush’s record set in the 1984/85 season, by only four goals.
Salah recently equalled Cristiano Ronaldo’s Premier League goal scoring record when he netted 31 times for Manchester United in the 2007/08 season.
Liverpool vs AS Roma
In the Liverpool vs AS Roma, Salah, 25, grabbed a brace and two assists in the 5-2 thumping of his former side in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semi-final last night.
The Liverpool forward broke Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 42 goals in all competitions.
Mohamed Salah now the Best in the World
According to Soccer Laduma, Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard believes Mohamed Salah is currently the best player in the world, ahead of even FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi and Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, after his stunning display against Roma on Tuesday night.
